Ceropegia ravikumariana – neue Art / new species

Ceropegia ravikumariana Kambale & Gnanasek.

Diese unauffällige, neue kletternde Art aus dem Tirunelveli-Distrikt in Tamil Nadu, Indien, wird mit Ceropegia candelabrum L. verglichen, ihre Blüten erinnern mich jedoch an die der aufrechtwachsenden Ceropegia-Arten wie Ceropegia sahyadrica M. Y. Ansari & Kulkarni.

Ceropegia ravikumariana Kambale & Gnanasek.

This inconspicous, new climbing species from the Tirunelveli District in Tamil Nadu, India, is compared to Ceropegia candelabrum L., its flowers, however, remind me on those of the upright-growing Ceropegia species like Ceropegia sahyadrica M. Y. Ansari & Kulkarni.
