Derris ‎(Fabaceae (Leguminosae))5 posts by 2 authors.

I have updated eFI (efloraofindia) page on Derris ‎(Fabaceae (Leguminosae))

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 links.

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

If someone can provide complete list of Indian species with source references it will be wonderful.

Any comments/ corrections are welcome. 


I have added list of Indian species based on Sanjappa 1992.


Thanks, …, Some species which are not mentioned in it are:
Derris heyneana  (Climbing Derris)
Derris microptera Benth. (ILDIS link)


Derris heyneana is mentioned by Sanjappa but it was my mistake; while typing the name it was left.

Derris ferruginea is taken as D. elegans var. vestita in Sanjappa (1992) which is now a distinct species.
Derris microptera is taken as a synonym of D. acuminata in Sanjapa (1992) but it is now a distinct
