Might be Aeschynomene asperaFabaceae

/species/a—l/f/fabaceae/aeschynomene/aeschynomene-aspera


… more chances of being some species of Chamaecrista.


Yes Chamaecrista sp is a closer identity. However if there are clearer flower photos, it would be good.


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


It looks like Chamaecrista pumila, if the stamens are 5, and there is a gland at the base of the rachis.


It looks to me Chamaecrista mimosoides (Cassia mimosoides)


Probably Chamecrista mimosoides


efi pages on Chamaecrista pumila & Chamaecrista mimosoides


Please check, (if you have specimen), a stalked peltate appendage on the rachis of leaf near to the lowest pair of leaflet. if it is there, then it is C. pumila. otherwise it can be C. mimosoides. For confirmation detailed study of specimen is must. otherwise very nice photos of all such parts are required.

It looks like Chamaecrista pumila; stamens 5, pod flat compressed, foliar gland stipate;

Chamaecrista mimosoides stamens 10, 5 long 5 short, alternating; foliar gland sessile, pod short strap shaped.


To me it appears closer to images at Chamaecrista mimosoides (L.) Greene rather than images of Chamaecrista pumila (Lam.) K.Larsen

I am sending you the pictures of Cassia (now Chamaecrista) mimosoides, a closely allied species to C. kleinii, required by you. The latter species is distinguished mainly by stalked glands on the petiole and less number of leaflets (10-20 pairs only). Otherwise both the plants are more or less similar looking.

I shot these pics at ICMR campus, Belgaum in Oct07.

Yes, Now, Chamaecrista mimosoides

could be. we have a page with a key but for my eyes I need better focused photos


forgot to give the url for our page
May we see the Gland at the base of the petiole (whether stalked or sessile), although plant may turn out to be Chamaecrista mimosoides (L.) Greene ?

I am attaching three photos where you can see the petioles. Quality of Photos may not be satisfactory but it may provide some clue and confirmation.


Thanks, … Though not clear, it is not stalked. So should be Chamaecrista mimosoides (L.) Greene only.

nice. did you touch it? did it fold up?


No it did not fold up like Mimosa pudica !


I got an impression from the internet that it should fold up


Oh! It does not ! Only some Mimosa sp. I guess !


 

On efloraofindia site I have found same description under commonly known as for two species namely, Caesalpinia mimosoides and Chamaecrista mimosoides. 

Kindly look into the matter, and correct it if necessary.
A layman like me is confused as both the species have same common names.

Thanks … for pointing to the error.

I have removed the list of common names in Caesalpinia mimosoides … will soon add the names in that page.

Seems to be Chamaecrista.


Yes it’s Chamaecritsta only sir,

Check for sp. Could be C.mimosoides,


May I request you to pl. post high resolution image so that we can check the glands on the petiole.
It may turn out to be Chamaecrista mimosoides (L.) Greene as per comparative images at Chamaecrista, as suggested by …

Wild plant seen near a lake.

There were no flowers.

Chamaecrista sp. ??


Chamaecritsta


Pl. send a high resolution image to check the gland at the petiole.

It should be sessile for Chamaecrista mimosoides (L.)  as per keys and comparative images at Chamaecrista


Keeping in view the number of leaflets and nature of stem “Stems variable, usually puberulent with short curved hairs, sometimes more or less densely clothed with longer spreading hairs”, it looks more close to Chamaecrista mimosoides (L.) Greene.


Probably the image on the group has not gone through.
Since it is larger than 8 MB.

But you might have recd it on your Gmail as also the others.
