Thanks a lot, Chadwell ji. Catalogue of Life gives it (*Clematis acutangula* Hook. fil. & Thomson) as a syn. of *Clematis ranunculoides *Franch. <http://www.catalogueoflife.org/col/details/species/id/4b108ba967fa595534fa93d0952d2875/synonym/67c606b476aebb3589ba8e8105c41646> Images of this look different at the following links: http://www.clematisinternational.com/page74.html http://www.pavelkaalpines.cz/Photos/China2009/clematisranunculoideslugulakeyunnanchina.html http://www.britishclematis.org.uk/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=17
---------- Forwarded message ---------- From: chrischadwell...@btinternet.com <chrischadwell...@btinternet.com> Date: 5 October 2016 at 09:05 Subject: Re: SK125OCT042016:ID To: efloraofindia <email@example.com> Cc: jmga...@gmail.com My first offering on Nepal. I am not as familiar with its flora as Ladakh or the NW Himalaya and as with the whole of the Himalayan foothills, the lower the elevation one goes, especially into sub-tropical and tropical plants, my knowledge rapidly diminishes! Nevertheless, I have visited Nepal on a number of occasions and know something of its flora. This Clematis is certainly not *C.buchananiana*. *I think you will find this is Clematis acutangula - it is not recorded in 'An Enumeration of the Flowering Plants of Nepal' Vol 2, 1979) nor 'Flora of Kathmandu Valley' (1986). Hooker knew the plant as is in FBI - from Khasia Hills (now Meghalaya). Do not know of any images on internet. The pressed specimens in Kew herbarium will not help much.* If circumstances permit, I shall contribute more about Nepalese flora.
