|In my garden I found this vine climbing on my citrus trees. Could some expert help me identify this plant ? Is it toxic ?

|Welcome to the site Carlos.
I have absolutely no knowledge of Brazilian vines but the leaves kind of vaguely (very vaguely) look morning glory-ish. Seedpod doesn't though (of those m.g. I'm familiar with).
Nothing that's been done can ever be changed.

|Looks like it may be one of the Aristolochia. They have very unusual flowers. http://garden.org/plants/search/text.php?q=aristolochia&butt...

|There are 5 species of Aristolochia in the state Pernambuca, N-E Brazil:
I only found one picture of the flower of Aristolochia papillaris
and a botanical drawing also illustrating the seedpod:
Aristolochia labiata is also a candidate..
Aristolochia sepicola, only found a flower photo;
The other two species don't have a leaf match.
If you get a flower on your plant, it would give you a sure id.

|Some info about the Aristolochia genus, like most toxic plants they also have much appreciated medicinal qualities.
