I thought it mat be "australis" what do you think?

If it is... what ssp might it be?

Thanks.

Looks like australis to me. Now you just need to narrow it down to which ssp....

Hoya australis ssp. tenuipes. As best I can claim. This is my variety (See October bloomers!).

A look at the leaves will help with the ID. If you check for different leaf characteristics I can reference the David Liddle/Foster article I have. Look for leaf pubescence on the top or bottom surface or if the leaf tends to have margins that are curved under or young leaves that are reddish/bronze.

I took a look at some of your other photos, LOVE the Worsleya procera. I just got some seeds of an epiphytic African bulb called Cyrtanthus epiphyticus which has a similar growth habit, well minus the fantastic way the leaves of mature Worsleya are displayed.
