Crotalaria filipes from Tung Fort, Lonavala.



Oct 2015. Talegaon Dabhade Pune

Requesting to Id this wild herb. I hope I am not wrongly posting for this fortnight


Interesting Crotalaria sp. I have also seen this around Chennai suburbs,.


Crotalaria hebecarpa.


Check for Crotalaria prostrata. Pl also check this link :    http://www.flowersofindia.net/catalog/slides/Prostrate%20Rattlepod.html.  Not sure in the absence of fruit photograph


Probably C.prostrata ….


efi page on Crotalaria hebecarpa & Crotalaria prostrata


This is Crotalaria filipes or C. filipes var. panthaki

Looks very close to C. hebecarpa but r/o because raceme is long is 2-3 flowered.

To be fair to …, bracts of C. prostrata cannot be seen at this distance, you need close up photo’s as the bracts are small and a lateral view of the flower. Practically, however I can say that habit is not of C. prostrata but C. filipes and quite honestly it’s variation ‘panthaki’.

For C. prostrata images please see link of the species posted by me this fortnight.


Crotalaria hebecarpa (SynGoniogyna hebecarpa) is ruled out, as because absence of solitary flower in each node.


The specimen more resembles like Crotalaria filipes.
