How about C. reflexa?. Please see close up of flowers in second photograph. Perhaps a clear close up of flower or fruit should help.

Sir Flowers were about half of the size of cuscuta reflexa. Stem was just like thick filament. much thinner as compared to C reflexa. typical bell shape of the flowers was not there
At present i dont have any more photo sending high resolution close up of the second photo for clarification

Please recall our discussion in your earlier post (C. reflexa) the key in FOC is as folows.. (I have taken part which is necessary of the entire key)

Please check the same


4 (2) Capsule entirely enclosed by withered corolla, circumscissile; corolla lobes keeled Cuscuta chinensis
+Capsule subtended by withered corolla, irregularly dehiscent; corolla lobes flat.  (5)
     
5 (4) Corolla lobes ovate or oblong, apex obtuse to rounded, often erect; corolla scales less than 1/2 as long as tube, deeply 2-cleft  Cuscuta australis
+Corolla lobes broadly triangular, apex acute or obtuse, often reflexed; corolla scales ca. as long as corolla tube, reaching throat, deeply fimbriate  Cuscuta campestris this was the one I got from Waynad

Giby
