Ceropegia sp. ‘Satpura Tiger Reserve’

These plants were photographed in the Satpura Tiger Reserve in the Hoshangabad District of Madhya Pradesh / India, it bears some similarities to Ceropegia angustifolia Wight or Ceropegia hirsuta Wight & Arnott, yet appears to be distinct from both of them.

There appears to be a climbing form (last photo) and a non-climbing form (first two photos).
