Ceropegia paulsamii Karuppusamy & Ravichandran

Diese Art wurde 2017 aus dem Megamalai Wildlife Sanctuary im Thani-Distrikt im indischen Tamil Nadu beschrieben.

Die Art ähnelt am ehesten Ceropegia decaiseana Wight, unterscheidet sich von dieser unter anderem aber durch ihre fast sukkulenten Spindelwurzeln, ihre eher ovalen Blätter sowie die unbehaarten Calyxloben.
