November 2014
No fruits were found

Alysicarpus species in eFloraofindia (with details/ keys from published papers/ regional floras/ FRLHT/ FOI/ Biotik/ efloras/ books etc., where ever available)

This is closely related to Alysicarpus gamble, or A. bupleurifolius. for confirmaton please send me habit and pods photo.

I have only these two photos of the habit and they are blurry. Forgot to click a habit shot.
No fruits were found at the time.
If id cannot be confirmed, I think we can leave it at Alysicarpus gamblei or Alysicarpus bupleurifolius.

it goes to A. bupleurifolius

Thank you so much …
Could you please tell me what made your id more inclined towards A. bupleurifolius? It would help me do the same if I came across this plant when not in fruiting.

Alysicarpus ¿ bupleurifolius ?
These photos may not help in getting to species of Alysicarpus, as the required aspects of the plant are not available. Would like to know if there are more chances of the species being bupleurifolius
at Ken Gharial Sanctuary on September 15, 2013 

This query was posted earlier; and the possibilities expressed were:

A. rugosus … …
A. longifolius … …

Dear friends, actually, the photos give no good hint for getting to species; therefore will label them as Alysicarpus sp.

A bupleurifolius.

Thank you very much … for the ID.

Ken Gharial Sanctuary … about 500 – 1800 ft asl
Date / Time: 15 SEP 13 at 10:55 AM … Altitude: about 531 ft asl
¿ Alysicarpus species ? … (family: Fabaceae)
Dear friends, please validate whether Alysicarpus, ID species if these pictures give any clue.
 … River Ken, also known as Karnavati

 YES it looks like A rugosus.

Another possibility is A.longifolius my photographs of which are available at this link
[This is not Indigofera linifolia.]

Many thanks … In general the plant resembles that of Alysicarpus longifolius. Except that the entire plant is comparatively very small in all aspects. The flower is just about 5 mm across, the leaves about 25 – 30 mm x 1.5 – 3 mm, wiry stem and branches. Not sure whether it is a kind of stunted growth due to available resources.

Alysicarpus bupleurifolius as per another thread.
