Desmodium heterocarpon (L.) DC.??

May be. I am not sure as per link 

It was totally covered with dust so it is difficult.

Could someone help for ID ?

Not sure for sp. 

Closest I can go is Desmodium heterocarpon (L.) DC. only as per comparative images at Desmodium

My confusions are stems are hardy and leaves are 5/6 cm (Approx. I did not measure) and does not look like any one I have snapped so far and images in efi.
