Bignoniaceae Climber for Id from Nahan: This climber with yellow flowers was shot from Renuka Ji lake in April 2011. Please help to identify..
This is Bignonia anguis-cati or Cat's Paw. The terminal leaflet is modified into 3 fid tendrils which hold on to rough surface of the wall hence the name.
Bignonia anguis-cati, the tendrills are 3 pronged and they initially hold the support as if someone (a cat) is trying to hold a grip to climb somewhere.....anguis-cati literally means fingers or claws of a cat...
Small spelling correction Bignonia unguis-cati L. now correctly known as Dolichandra unguis-cati (L.) L.G.Lohmann

Bignoniaceace Week: 080113 SS1: Dolichandra Unguis-Cati from Trivandrum:
A few pictures of the Cat's claw creeper, native to Tropical America.
Dolichandra unguis-cati (L.) L.G.Lohmann
Synonym : Macfadyena unguis-cati (L.)
Photographed on 21 April 2012 from the Napier Museum premises, Trivandrum city.
Has compound leaves and the third 'leaflet' has been modified into a small three-clawed tendril.
Sorry the photographs are not very clear. The flowers were high up, this all I could get.
Experts please validate the id.
Very good photographs ...
new name for me,
do we know with some more common name?
looks familiar
It is only recently that I came to know the botanical name of this plant.
I am not aware of any other common name.
Bignonia unguis-cati is another synonym.

Requesting to please ID this plant captured in the Ooty Botanical Gardens, Ooty in November 2013. Is it Adenocalymna comosum?
This seems to be Dolichandra unguis-cati.
Thank you ...
It does look like Dolichandrone unguis-cati.
A cropped version of the tendrils in the second picture is attached...

Here are some pics. Please help me to identify the climber. The picture was taken at Anand Loke, New Delhi.
Unable to see the details. Close up would have helped. 
Just a guess after zooming the picture..... Dolichandra unguis-cati.
But as ... rightly said, close up pictures would help. 
Thanks ...  Mailing more photos. 
Thanks ... It does look like my suggested id.
