Dear Neil,
There is no species called Ipomea chinensis. There is one Ipomea
sinensis. It has small flowers with distinctly heart-shaped sepals. In
your pictures I could not get a reasonable view of the sepals.

Hello friends,
 
Original thread posted by me is at http://groups.google.co.in/group/indiantreepix/browse_thread/thread/1783167497a70500?hl=en# with the subject line: Ipomoea 10OCT09
 
Ipomoea sinensis (I. calycina) has very small -- ALL WHITE -- flower compared to what is here.
I. sinensis is just about 1 cm; and is smaller than I. triloba which may be about 1.5 - 2 cm.
 
Regards.

Hi Tabish,
  Spoke to Dr.Almeida. Ipomea sinensis is a synonym of Ipomea chinensis, but he generally refers to it as I.chinensis.
                    Regards,
                      Neil.

chinensis and sinensis are orthographic variants, but chinensis never seems to have been published. I. sinensis has much smaller all white flowers (published as I calycina in FBI), and doesn't seem to be one uploaded by Neil ji.

Thanks Garg ji. Thanks for pointing to Ipomoea piurensis O'Donell as synonym of Ipomoea acanthocarpa (Choisy) Hochst. ex Schweinf. & Asch.
Will revise my notes soon.
Regards.
Dinesh
