Desmodium heterocarpon
If I am not wrong … had also posted it recently from Mulshi.
Such a beautiful terminal raceme.
A Desmodium from a group with trifoliate leaves.=>shrub and not herb. Pods deeply constricted between seeds; joints dehiscent. (Pods scarcely constricted and joints indehiscent in Desmodium pulchellum).

Photographed at my farm at Shahapur on Sunday (around 30/11/2010) . Please identify this species of Desmodium. It stood about a foot high. It is not D.congestum. Also don’t think it is D.heterocarpon either.


can we have sizes of leaflets, raceme and corollas? Also if
stipels present.


Will do, but after 2 weeks.


Thanks … Kept a watch on it and it turned out to be Desmodium congestum [Tapoti].
While most self-respecting Desmodium congestums generally flower & fruit between September and October, this one probably a straggler flowered only in November and fruited in December….hence the confusion.
Sending a few photographs.

Look like Desmodium congestum


I find two species with the same name as per link (http://www.theplantlist.org/tpl/search?q=Desmodium+congestum+):

Which one is the posted species ?


It does not look like Leptodesmia congesta Baker (= Desmodium congestum (Wight) Benth., Nicolsonia congesta Wight), which is illustrated at plantillustrations
It is also not Desmodium congestum Wight & Arn. (= Dendrolobium triangulare (Retz.) Schindl.), as per the diagram at plantillustrations
So I guess the ID is still unresolved?! The inflorescence doesn’t look like ‘congested’. To me it somewhat resembles D. heterocarpon but not sure.

I agree with … It matches with images at Desmodium heterocarpon (L.) DC.

It looks close to Desmodium heterocarpon. Let’s await for more comments.


Agreed with … ID. I was about to respond this. I will upload my collections soon.


Yes … I think you are right. I was slightly confused about sessile pod. After seeing the illustration on eFlora of China I realized that it refers to almost absence of stipe above calyx and not direct absence of pedicel.


yes even i guess Desmodium heterocarpon


I too think that … is correct with the id.

Desmodium species, may be D. heterocarpon


Desmodium multiflorum DC. ??
Confusion about leaf size !
Desmodium multiflorum



Legume shape size is completely different from D. microphyllum !
Rather, I guess matches with D. multiflorum.


Small size of leaflets is creating doubts about D. multiflorum:
Shrubs, erect, 1-2 m tall, yellow to white pubescent, be­coming glabrescent. Leaves 3-foliolate; petiole 1.5-4 cm, densely tomentose; terminal leaflet blade elliptic or obovate, 5-10 × 3-6 cm, base cuneate or nearly rounded, apex obtuse or acute, mucronate.
As per Flora of Pakistan:
Erect shrub, branches grey silky. Leaf trifoliolate, petiole 2.5-6.5 cm long, leaflets 7.5-10 cm long, c. 5 cm broad, ovate or obovate, rounded at both ends, mucronate, glabrescent above, densely appressed hairy below; stipules c. 7.5 mm long.
This is something else.

It is Desmodium heterocarpon (L.) DC. only as already identified by … and as rightly placed in efi site.

as this desmodium heterocarpon has been declared here as Sanskritशालपर्णी salaparni. I would like to make it more clear that in Ayurveda the Desmodium gangeticum is used in the name of shaliparni not the heterocarpon species.


Thanks …

I am in full agreement with your thoughts. Desmodium gangeticum is the only शालपर्णी salaparni. If we click on this blue underlined name, it will lead us to a page where I have put the bibliography. I have copy-pasted the contents of the page below. At the bottom, I have put my observation / finding. Henceforth, I will put maroon colour to the names which are ambiguous, but I do need to list the erroneous entries from the sites that have quoted them. Only then the sites may get to know of taking any corrective action. They themselves have depended on OR referred some other source.

yes and very nice. I have always wondered when see these fabaceae plants, do local animals eat them? or local people do something with their seeds?

Root powder taken to relieve hyper acidity and its juice cures peptic ulcer. No other usage as such.


that’s a lot. very useful to the ethnic people in the hills then


Yes indeed.



Going by the habit, it may rather appears to be more closer to Desmodium heterocarpon (L.) DC.

Pookode Lake  Wayanad
Date: November 13, 2019 … Altitude: about 770 m (2,530 ft) asl
¿ Desmodium heterocarpon ?  
Dear friends,
I think this could be Desmodium heterocarpon; please validate. These plants were in a small colony on bank of the lake; and they were just about a foot high. The trifoliate leaves have a hint of variegation.

To me also appears close to Desmodium heterocarpon (L.) DC. as per comparative images at Desmodium
