Dear friends, please validate this ID whether pumila OR some other species of Chamaecrista.

… the banks of river Ken which flows in the vicinity, and forest walls in and around Panna are decorated  with slate rock


Yes, It is Chamaecrista pumilla, I am sure.

Chamaecrista sp??? at Goreawada Nagpur- 31Aug2014-PKA2 : Attachments (6). 5 posts by 2 authors.   

Seen this prostrate herb near Gorewada Lake, Nagpur. Looks like some Chamaecrista sp??? (Family: Caesalpiniaceae).. ID please..
Flower size small (approx: 8mm)
Date/Time:30-08-2014 / 10:00AM


Chamaecrista species in efi with keys 


Yes it is Chamaecrista pumila (Lam.) K.Larsen Syn. Cassia pumila


Please check, There is small stalked gland just below the lowest pair of leaflets on the rachis. then it is Chamaecrista pumila.



Photographed from Delhi Ridge on 27-8-09. The only thing I can say that flowers remind me of Corchorus, but leaves are Pinnate compound.

looks like Cassia klanii, a wild guess


Check for Cassia uniflora-Caesalpinaceae


Today I studied this plant. It was identified as Cassia pumila. …, thanks for nearly correct guess. I had never seen such small flowers in Cassia, so got confused initially, but resolved it today.

To me also appears close to images at

On 17/8/08 in Talakona forest, AP near Tirupati. I saw it prostrate or a bit climbing- smallish one.


The picture 8521 is Cassia mimosoides, P047.jpg is Cassia sophera.


Thanks, …, Description seems to match at the link of Cassia mimosoides:

& image at:  http://static.flickr.com/125/319668406_9037180abe_o.jpg


Cassia mimosoides (Chamaecrista mimosoides) leaves are much longer. See this:
http://www.flowersofindia.net/catalog/slides/Feather-leaved%20Cassia.html
Could your plant be Chamaecrista nictitans – Partridge pea?


Links for Chamaecrista nictitans:
Tropical forages (details with pix),
HEAR (lots of pix).

From the above, I certainly find my post closer to Chamaecrista nictitans. Pl. confirm.


Now, I find Chamaecrista nictitans ssp. patellaria var. glabrata at India Biodiversity Portal .

Could anybody pl. confirm it as Chamaecrista nictitans ssp. patellaria var. glabrata ? 


It is Cassia pumilla, the leaflets are <20 (pairs?) in this plant. But in cassia mimosoides, the leaflets are between 25-40 (pairs?); as both are prostrate there a lot of scope to confuse between the two. A gland is present at the first pair of leaflets is seen in Cassia mimosoides but not in cassia pumilla

Please identify this plant from Sikkim, April – 2015.
Appx height 1ft, growing near roadside.


Looks similar to Cassia mimosoides


It is Chamaecrista, but without observing the stamens, and the gland it is difficult to conclude its species. The pod and leaflet number suggest C.pumila.



Came across this erect herb with Pinnate leaves on the way to Prabalgad. Could this be some Cassia sp??
Date/Time: 14-08-2010 / 12:35 PM
Location: Thakurwadi, at the base of Prabalgad.

Habitat: wild
Plant Habit: Erect Herb, Approx 35 to 40cm in height.

Leaves Pinnate, leaflets having sharp point at the apex.

Pl. find the attached file contain photo for id. confirmation.
Date: 04.08.2013
Location: Adyar, Chennai
Habitat: Urban
Habit: herb

Aeschynomene sp.


Seems to be Chamaecrista sp. pls compare with C. auricoma (Grah. ex Benth) Singh and C. mimosoides (L.) Greene


It is species of Caesalpinia sp.


It looks to me Chamaecrista pumila= Cassia pumila


It is Chamaecrista mimosoides a synonym of Cassia mimosoides; the  leaflets are more than 25, a gland on the petiole at the base of 1st  pair of leaflets indicate it as C.mimosoides


Neither number of stamens nor glands (whether sessile in C. mimosoides with 10 stamens or stalked in C. pumila with 5 stamens) can be seen in these images.

I request … to post original images.
However otherwise, to me also appears to be close to images Chamaecrista pumila (Lam.) K.Larsen as identified by … and as per keys at Chamaecrista

It looks different from those at Chamaecrista mimosoides (L.) Greene

Had posted one earlier.

Pl. check species available at

Pl. post the original images to see the glands (whether staked or not) at the base of the petiole.

I can see stalked glands at the petiole just below the lower most leaflets in some of them- so it should be Chamaecrista pumila (Lam.) K.Larsen

Thanks for resolving the id.

Chamaecrista kleinii (Wight&Arn.) V.Singh


I think it should be Chamaecrista pumila (Lam.) K.Larsen as stalked gland can be seen.

Looks different from images of Chamaecrista kleinii (Wight & Arn.) V.Singh, which has fewer no. of pair of leaflets.


.

Tiny plant seen at Gangapur Grasslands yesterday (3.1.21).

The pods are very similar to the one I had posted earlier and id suggested as Chamaecrista pumila.

My suggested id was supported by …


Chamaecritsta pumila,


Thanks a lot …

I had posted the same plant from the same area earlier.

Since it looked similar, I had suggested the id.


Pl. post a high resolution image to see the glands at the petiole.


Adding the high resolution images one at a time.
