    Check out species in the Aristolochia genus, and see if you have a match. Common names include worm killer, birthwort, pipevine, and Dutchman’s pipe. According to sources, there are over 500 species. Although I don’t know which species yours is, it looks similar to A. bracteaolata, perhaps you would be able to rule it in or out. Click on images below to enlarge. Could you share with us its local name? Thank you and best wishes!
