Up loading my pic of pods and other vegetative part of Crotalaria calycina
Photographed this small herb in Pench Tiger Reserve on 26-12-05 and 29-9-04
I think id is correct.
Yes … This appears to be C. calycina
This certainly looks like typical C. calycina. Nice pic to identify
These Crotolaria genera are found in Satyamangalam hills at an altitude of 900- 1100M.
The last two photos belong to Crotalaria calycina. First photo (IMG_6749) is a different one.

I am not able to figure out if it is actually C. calycina or some other species. Help is appreciated.
This is C. calycina Schrank. Actually Gamble mentioned 4 types in calycina based on the nature of leaf and the altitude in which they occur. But these all are now reduced to synonymy based on other systematic data.

My opinion is Crotolaria naikiana
Place: Nashik City

The deflexed pedicels indicates Crotalaria calycina
Thank you … For the ID. But I hope pods included in sepals are a character of C.calycina?
Thank you once against for all the trouble.
