Helixanthera ligustrina (Wall.) Danser from Assam KD 03 Jul '15 : 7 posts by 3 authors. Attachments (6)
Attached images may be Helixanthera ligustrina (Wall.) Danser. Please validate. 
Date :19.02.2015
Location: Assam
Family : Loranthaceae
Genus & species :  Helixanthera ligustrina (Wall.) Danser
Habitat: Grows as parasite on Zizyphus mauritiana
Habit : Stem parasite 
efi page on Helixanthera ligustrina   
Inflorescence and bud characters (except colour, though buds can be green as per eFI record), I think, qualify but the problems are (1) BSI doesn't record the presence in Assam and (2) host species belong to different families.
Please wait for blooming flower, it should be pink or scarlet or yellow (BSI).
I am really sorry, I missed the bud characters entirely. The flower seems to be 6-merous (please see the part of pic6 attached here). It is not Helixanthera ligustrina (Wall.) Danser.
Please check probability of Macrosolen cochinchinensis (Lour.) Tiegh.
here is part of hte pic-6

Though there is no info on the host plant being a Rhamnaceae member, the buds in the attached plates suggest 6-merous flower, and it should be Macrosolen cochinchinensis (lour.) Teigh.
