Turbina corymbosa (syn. Rivea corymbosa) is a vine from the Convolvulaceae family, which also includes the genera Ipomoea (Morning Glory) and Merremia (Hawaiian Woodrose), Argyreia (HBWR) amongst others. A large vine in tropical and subtropical conditions which has heart-shaped leaves. Likes adequate water and a full-sun to part-shade position in well drained soil. Native to Central America. Many members of the family are used shamanically, medicinally and for divination purposes (for example, Argyreia nervosa, Stictocardia tiliifolia, Rivea corymbosa and Ipomoea violacea).

Turbina corymbosa seeds contain ergine (LSA) produced from a symbiosis with an endophytic fungus and have similar traditional uses to Argyreia nervosa seeds. The flowers are well liked by bees. Info at Wikipedia.
