Is it some Smilax...

Smilax species in eFloraofindia (with details/ keys from published papers/ regional floras/ FRLHT/ FOI/ Biotik/ efloras/ books etc., where ever available on net)


Nice images, check list of Nepal plants will help.
Where to check ? Which sp? Any clue ?
Smilax
glyciphylla
 Sm. (accepted name)  ??
But not listed in Nepal.
or,
Smilax elegans subsp. elegans (accepted name) ???
Smilax glaucophylla Klotzsch (synonym)

Thanks, ..., for initial id.
To me also appears close to Smilax elegans as per herbarium specimen as below:
I guess Smilax elegans Wall. ex Kunth (accepted name) is the correct ID.

Yes. Appears so as per images at Smilax elegans 

Are these different??

Correction:

All are same except the page, which deals with all the subspecies of Smilax elegans Wall. ex Kunth (i.e. Smilax elegans subsp. elegans, Smilax elegans subsp. osmastonii (F.T.Wang & Tang) Noltie & Smilax elegans subsp. subrecta Noltie)
