    Leea species in Sahyadri: Would like to know the checklist of Leea species distributed in Sahyadri
    (Western Ghats of Maharashtra).
    1. Leea asiatica
    2. Leea indica
    3. Leea macrophylla
    4. Leea hirta ... ¿ syn. of L. aequata ?
    5. ... and, any more ?
    Key to ID L. asiatica and L. hirta will greatly help.
    Found another species distributed in Maharashtra: Leea setuligera
    Thus keys to ID of L. asiatica, L. hirta (syn. of Leea aequata L.) and L. setuligera will greatly help
     

    Pl. go through Leea (‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎Vitaceae) page with images of species in efloraofindia.

    If you find any incorrect identification, pl. let us know. If anybody can send images of other species of this genera (for incorporation in the website), if any, or can identify unidentified images, it will be really nice.
