… looks to me like a species of Crotalaria.

it can be either Crotalaria evolvuloides (if pods hirsute) or C. prostrata (in case of glabrous pods). Needs confirmation!

Thanks … Original pictures are of plus 4 MB. I checked it, pods are glabrous.

I think this will be Crotalaria ferruginea as per images and keys herein.

On further consideration, it is Crotalaria prostrata only as per POWO specimen- one
I can not see any stipules as are there in Crotalaria ferruginea as per POWO specimens- one, two, three and as per FoC illustration.
