Last one to be id'd.
Again I am most grateful to Claudia from the Herbarium on Mauritius for her expert help and explanation.....
Quote....." Cyphostemma mappia (Mauritius endemic)
Leaves of Cyphostemma are very variable - in the species description in the Flore des Mascareignes it says:
"Leaves 8-12 cm, variable on a same plant, bipinated, pinated, trifoliated or simple."
Young leaves tend to be more variable than mature leaves (usually simple).
The trunk and architecture of the plant are very recognizable.
The species is being now quite used for landscaping,
Best wishes, Claudia"
