I think Convolvulus prostratus (syn: C. pluricaulis)
I knew that its a variable species. But i didn't expect so much difference as its seen here:

This is Convolvulus pluricaulis as said by ... This is also known as Shankhpushpi as far as I know.

Convolvulus prostratus..Indira Park,Ambala cantt,dated 26th april 2013 : Attachments (2). 1 post by 1 author. Convolvulus prostratus 



Shankpushpi- which species? : 2 posts by 2 authors.

I am way too much confused; the plant being referred in Ayurveda as Shankapushpa/ Shankpushpi belong to one species of more? Is it Convolvulus pluricaulis, with its round flowers, or Clitoria ternatea. with its conch shaped flowers? Both could be white or blue. "Shanka"=conch, so C. ternatea seems to me a better bet. Some say right species is Canscora decussata, or even Evolvulus alsinoides
I would be obliged if someone can provide correct species name, with ID features and description.

This paper should help in deciding for Convolvulus pluricaulis, now correctly known as C. prostratus.

Need help to compare the specimens of Convolvulus. Both Convolvulus prostratus??
Apr 1, 2018. Faridkot. Punjab, elevation is 196 metres (643 ft)

I think seeing the variation at Convolvulus prostratus, I think both are same.

SD011- plant ID assistance : 14 posts by 5 authors. Attachments (1)
Kindly assist with plant ID

Is it Euploca strigosa ?

Why restricted in posting only one image? Leaf, habitat, location, elevation, date are also vital in identifying. Anyways, looks matching with the limited image!
My apologies, sir, I got this photo from somebody else. Conveyed your message to them that more details are required.
Possibly 'No' as it does not match with the photographs at eflora site:  

It has some resemblance to white variety of Evolvulus species. Not sure. The examination of other plant parts need to be checked  for proper ID.

Okay. What might it be, then?
Does not match with any species so far in efi site at Evolvulus

Also does not match with Euploca species so far in efi site.

Also does not match with Heliotropium

I think this is Convolvulus prostratus Forssk. as per images and details herein.

Yes its resmbles ...,  Convolvulus only,
