Convolvulaceae member for ID 18/11/2011 SMP1: A Convolvulaceae member. Growing on a hedge in a private bungalow.
Apparantly everything similar to Railway creeper. The flowers are white though.
Flowers axillary often in pairs. One blooming other in bud form.
Size around 5 cm. The leaves are characteristic: Palmately lobed; Proximal lobe divided.

nice depiction of all features, like it...
I have seen this before... but have no pics... before the days of digital camera..
Ipomoea cairica, very likely
nice pic by Dr. Starr of Univ Hawaii... wiki...
He shows whitish flowers with a slight pink tinge, like yours...
but internet had many other deeper colors.. source of my confusion...
but leaves seem to be the diagnostic feature...
I WONDER WHAT WOULD THE TAXONOMISTS SAY...???

Ipomoea cairica also occur in white color. White variety very commonly found in Ambala Cantt Haryana
It does appear to be white Ipomoea cairica

Flower ID Request 20120619-AM: I have attached two crops of pics of a flower and its plant that I took on Saturday. The following information is available:
Date/Time- 2012-06-16 / 10:00 hrs
Location- Malawli Village near Pune located at an altitude of about 620 metres.

Habitat- Wild

Plant Habit- Appeared to be a large Shrub

Height- Around 2 metres

Leaves- Slender

Flowers Size- 2.5 to 3 inches Colour - Light Purple

Please excuse the pic for leaf size comparison as it was windy and I could not focus well enough. Please let me know what flower it could be.

As an aside, can anyone here please put me in touch with a zoologist, especially someone who has knowledge about crustaceans? Or can someone direct me to an appropriate forum? I have clicked a few pics of land crabs found near Lohagad Fort in Pune that I would like to be identified. Help on the crab IDs would be great!
this is Ipomoea palmata. railway creeper
... was not aware of Ipomoea palmata ... would have confused this plant with the regular Ipomoea cairica.
Ipomoea palmata ... put as synonym of Ipomoea cairica var. cairica.

Convolvulaceae Climber for ID: AVD:2:01042014 : 6 posts by 2 authors. Attachments (5).
Please help me in identifying the Convolvulaceae climber images attached herewith. 
Habitat: Along the river bank.
Habit: Climber 
Leaves: Palmatly divided in 7 lobes. Overall 3cm x 2.5 cm, lobes elliptic-lanceolate, acute, glabrous. leaves are very similar to Ipomoea cairica
Flowers: White in axillary cymes, 5.5 to 6 cm long, sepals 5, ovate, glabrous.
Merremia quinqufolia
Sorry. I ignored size of 5 cm. This is I. cairica alright. Flowers are often white.
Thank you for the id. The snow white flowers without even a tinge of purple actually put me off the track.

Ipomoea for ID : 040611 : AK-3: Taken at Nasik, Maharashtra on the 23rd of Feb, 2011.
Is this the common railway creeper? Those flowers are normally purple in color.
Could be white-flowered Ipomoea cairica 

I agree with .. it is Ipomoea cairica. See the link

Flora of Panipat; Ipomoea cairica from Arya P G College Panipat Haryana: Sharing pics of Ipomoea cairica shot from Arya PG College Campus
This was growing wildly in a roadside area near Sondapur village Assandh Road Panipat before coming to my college. 

This, I think, is Ipomoea cairica only. Here the leaves divided up to their base. Whereas, in I. mauritiana the leaves not fully but parted till below middle only.

One of the commonest yet most useful of the evergreen creepers, refreshing the eve in the hottest weather with its clear, green leaves and delicate, mauve blooms, the Railway Creeper is found in gardens, villages, and on practically every railway station, thus earning for itself its nickname.
This morning glory vine is beautiful, climbing on to whatever it finds - the purple flower studded vine wrapped around bending bamboo stems, is a pleasing sight.
Its stem is hairless, readily set roots when in touch with the earth. This species can be identified by its leaves which are hairless to 9cm long with 5-7 lobes, middle lobe the largest. Flowers purple, pink or rarely pinkish white, to 8cm across, solitary or in groups of 2-3. Fruit a 4-valved capsule, about 1cm across, each valve with 1 seed. Seed with wispy hairs attached. Spread by wind, water and humans.

Convolvulaceae week: RVS3: Ipomoea cairica:  Ipomoea cairica, from Bangalore...
Often called as Railway creeper as it is seen growing along Railway lines esp near Mumbai.
A naturalised climber.
I have often noticed that the the 2 basal lobes of the palmately divided leaf often have an additional partial lobe just like an appendage only in some leaves of the climber.
"I have often noticed that the the 2 basal lobes of the palmately divided leaf often have an additional partial lobe just like an appendage only in some leaves of the climber."
The structures you noticed occur on many multi-lobed Convolvulacea species and it is something that I watch for and have even selected for in my personal collection.
