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.
