Is the ID correct? 

Looks different from images at Smilax aspera

I am also not convinced ! 

Check other species in efi site. 

Now we have images on all pages of smilax

Pl. check with Smilax zeylanica

Need your help for ID of this please. 
Smilax zeylanica and Smilax ovalifolia are two different sp., is it ?
FOI giving both names for same plant.

Both are separate species according to the Plant List

What about the ID of above post?
I think may be more closer to Smilax ovalifolia Roxb. ex D.Don rather than Smilax zeylanica L. (based on the relative size of the umbel and pedicels therein)
It could be …

Please check for Smilax (Smilaceae) species.
Smilax in eFI.

I did check but could not come to the conclusion.

What is the habit of the plant?
Herbaceous climbing plant. Thin forest of short trees. Shady.
'Herbaceous climbing plant'
Smilax seems to be the best possibility. Leaf and inflorescence (type) are good matches for Smilax.

Is it Smilax elegans subsp. elegans (accepted name)  ??
Altitude and fruiting season is as per the following link.

Is this also the same plant from different location ??
Location: Ranikot, Bhaktapur, Nepal
Date :  10 May 2014
Altitude : 6300 ft.

This is Smilax too.
Whether it's the same species.. that's difficult to comment on with available data.. but given that the geography, altitude and time of the year are similar, one can make that presumption.

Pl. check with images at
Smilax sp. But which species ?
I guesed S. lanceifolia !

Which Smilax ??

Pl. check species available at 

Closest I can go with comparative images at Smilax is Smilax ovalifolia Roxb. ex D.Don
But this will only be tentative without flowers or fruits.


No. Looks different.

Thank you ... I guess no other Smilax has big size leaf of the water bottle length.

IDENTITY OF A SPINY CLIMBER : 9 posts by 6 authors. Attachments (2)
Attaching two images of a climber whose main stem is spiny.
Can any one identify the species please?

Smilax sp.
Possibly Heterosmilax?
seems to be what was once called "aw green climber", a smilax sp. once for a few years grown /shown in the greenhouses at NYBG. they were studying the taxonomic revisions. don't have time to track those things now. i am sure some botany professor will know
Looks like Smilax sp. 
Smilax wallichii
