  • Comments : Occasional in scrub jungles up to 1200 m on thickets. Medium-thick stems, small and acute corona lobes and an elongated style-head make this species readily distinguished from the other representatives of the Cynanchum viminale relationship in India. But since ?. E. Brown (1908) used the name Cynanchum intermedium for a leafy South African twiner (of an uncertain status), a replacement name for Sarcostemma intermedium in Cynanchum became necesssary, and the name Cynanchum sarcomedium has been proposed.
