Alysicarpus longifolius

Lovely shots!!!

It looks like Alysicarpus pubescens (Durangi shevra). See the links:,

By any chance this is not orchid.
It is definitely Alysicarpus. I just wanted to know opinion from newer members whether it is A. pubescens or A.longifolius. The colour pattern of both the species is very similar.

… a strong feeling that it has to be Alysicarpus pubescens, the bicolor alyce clover • Marathi: दुरंगी शेवरा durangi shevra




attaching images of A pubescens from Dindori Nashik,
i think the variety is vasavadae looking at the fruit

please validate
