Ceropegia pullaiahii Kullayiswamy, Sandhyarani & Karuppusamy

Ceropegia pullaiahii wurde im Jahr 2013 wissenschaftlich beschrieben, sie ähnelt Ceropegia mahabalei Hemadri & M. Y. Ansari, unterscheidet sich von dieser Art aber durch ihren windenden Wuchs und ihre dreiblütigen Cymen.

Die neue Art stammt aus offenen, trockenen laubwerfenden Wäldern im Anantapur-Distrikt im indischen Bundesstaat Andrah Pradesh.

Ihre unterirdischen Knollen werden von der lokalen Bevölkerung gegessen.

Ceropegia manoharii Sujanapal, P.M.Salim, Anil Kumar & Sasidh.

Indian scientists have discovered and described a new Ceropegia species in the Western Ghats. Ceropegia manoharii, so the name of this new species, has been described obviously already in December 2010.

Unfortunately I couldn’t find anything about it except for a single article and copies of it – a citation from this article follows.:

Ceropegia manoharii belongs to a rare plant group evoking scientific curiosity, with its many members endemic to the Western Ghats and having unusual flowers.”
