Undescribed Eriostemma Hoya

This thin vining Eriostemma with glabrous leaf and stem comes from Papua New Guinea and is as yet undescribed. After a hot dry spell, the cooler rainy spell appears to induce it to flower freely. The green campanulate flower is rather small for this section and the centre of the corona is covered by dense hairs. According to Mr David Liddle, it is closely related to Hoya hollurungii.

unusual, that I will not see possibly :)
you had doubts if there is a rose on the picture - yes, it is leaning on the tree and it is 6 m long (can grow much more)
Greetings,
Ewa
