Rao Jodha Desert Rock Park  Jodhpur

Date: October 24, 2018 … Altitude: about 300 m (980 feet) asl

¿ Prosopis juliflora ?  
Dear friends,
This kind of poor quality photos are result of desperate and thirsty clicking while the sun is hastening to set !!
Please ignore them if they do not provide any clues 🙂
I am not sure whether this tree could be Prosopis juliflora. I can see thorns and pods. Leaves bipinnate, paripinnate. I am not able to see presence of any gland(s) on the rachis. Please help with ID to genus level, if the pods provide any hint.

Again, one of my flickr contacts provided me the ID as Acacia senegal, now Senegalia senegal
I referred to Pradip Krishen’s small Plant Guide to Rao Jodha Desert Rock Park, in which Kumatiyo, (Acacia senegal ) is illustrated. A characteristic feature of this small tree is – it is the only desert acacia with set of three thorns, the middle one of which is recurved.
Here is cropped version of one of the photos, though of blurred quality, showing the three thorns at every node …


Pl. check
