Probably a Canavalia sp. ..


Canavaliaspecies in eFIoraofindia (with details/ keys from published papers/ regional floras/ FRLHT/ FOI/ efloras/ books etc., where ever available)  


Can this be Canavalia ensiformis or Canavalia virosa?

1) Leaves sparsely pubescent beneath; calyx pubescent- C. ensiformis (as given in Flora of Tumkur District)

2) Reference for C. virosahttp://florakarnataka.ces.iisc.ernet.in/hjcb2/herbsheet.php?id=1973&cat=1


Canavalia cathartica Thouars ( = Canavalia virosa (Roxb.) Wight & Arn.)


To me it looks different from other posts & I think keys at Flora of China lead me to Canavalia ensiformis (Linnaeus) Candolle
