Thanks a lot, Chadwell ji.
Catalogue of Life gives it (*Clematis acutangula* Hook. fil. & Thomson) as
a syn. of *Clematis ranunculoides *Franch.

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.
