Ceropegia sp. ‘Nimba Mountains’

Ceropegia sp. ‘Nimba Mountains’

This plant was photographed in 2012 on the Nimba Mountains (lowland area to NE, near Gbakoré, adjacent to Cavally River) in Guinea.

This may be a member of the species group around Ceropegia campanulata G. Don, however, its flower does not resemble any of the Ceropegia flowers known to me.

~~~

The upright-growing grassland species are not well known and are in need of a revision.
