I have updated eFI (efloraofindia) page on Crotalaria

Attempts have been made to incorporate most of the species available in India & nearby areas with details & keys directly or through links as far as possible. It’s quite possible that there may be some discrepancy in the accepted names & synonyms taken from other databases.

Species discussed so far in efloraofindia are given at the bottom of the page in the form of links against Subpages (Click on View All). On clicking them one can see all the details.

Any comments are welcome.


.

Pl. go through Crotalaria (‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎Fabaceae (Leguminosae)‎) page with images of species (done by me) in efloraofindia.

If you find any incorrect identification, pl. let us know. If anybody can send images of other species of this genera (for incorporation in the website), if any, or can identify unidentified images, it will be really nice.
