efi page on Cajanus scarabaeoides  


Based on the shape of leaves, can this be A. albicans instead?


I think … right. In A. albicans the leaves and pods are glaucous (whitish, so the name albicans).


Yes it is Cajanus scarabaeoides (Syn. Atylosia scarabaeoides)

Cajanus scarabaeoides (Fabaceae) to me.
Please compare with more images in efi.


   
Rhynchosia aurea DC. Prodr. 2: 386
Slender trailing annual herb; leaves pinnately trfoliate, leaflets obovate to rhomboidal up to 5 cm long, pubescent on both surfaces; flowers yellow in raceme; calyx up to 15 mm long, teeth 3-4 times as long as tube, setaceous, lowest longest; pod globose, up to 15 mm in diam, 2-seeded.

To me it looks different from other images at Rhynchosia aurea (Willd.) DC. 
Pl. also check with images at Rhynchosia rufescens (Willd.) DC. with your detailed images.


I think it is a species of Atylosia 


Thanks, … It appears to be Cajanus scarabaeoides (L.) Thouars as per images herein


Thanks … Yes it is Cajanus scarabaeoides as confirmed by at least three experts on Facebook Indian Flora, without me giving any hint.

This should be Rhynchosia aurea, however according to Flora of Nashik District there are only two species namely R. minima and R. rothii.


To me it looks different from other images at Rhynchosia aurea (Willd.) DC.

May be Cajanus sp.

Requesting to please ID this climber. This was found on a wasteland near the Charkop mangroves in Mumbai in April 2019.

The leaves seem to be of Cajanus scarabaeoides, but flowers confuse me.


Thanks … Could it be that the flowers and the leaves belong to different species. Can the flowers be Pseudarthria viscida? I recollect you mentioning that name at that time.


Yes …, the flowers do look like that of Pseudarthria viscida.
