Please identify the prostrate herb, appear to be Alysicarpus sp.

It is Alysicarpus bupleurifolius (Because pod is glabrous)


pod glabrous and veined
-Pod flat, sub terete and calyx much longer than 1st joint of pod-A.bepleurifolius
-Pod slightly moniliform and calyx shorter and slightly longer than first joint- A.vaginalis
Looks closer to Alysicarpus vaginalis, some more pictures are attached kindly go through.

You are confused, pod flat in A.vaginalis, not in A. bupleurifolius, leaf structure does not match with A.vaginalis

From … in another thread:
Sorry, but I am not confused, please refer key
Floras by Prof.T.Pullaiah
In A.bepluerifolious leaves are linear and lanceolate peduncle up to 10cm.

A monilifer

Check with Alysicarpus vaginalis …

Thanks, …, for the id.
I think more closer to Alysicarpus monilifer rather than Alysicarpus vaginalis as per images and details herein.

This is Alysicarpus monilifer due red brown soil its showing brown shade on the stem and leaves.
