I found this climber in a Scrub forest in Bhandara District in March.
first i felt it is some member of Combretaceae or Lythraceae but not
getting any clue further.
please help in I.D.

Nice photos, ...!
It looks like Symphorema polyandrum (Symphoremataceae, previously from Verbenaceae).
I have seen the other species S. involucratum a few times, but never got to see this one (Ref Flora of Bombay Presidency).
