Kindly identify
Small herb
Shimla Water Catchment Area Wildlife Sanctuary

This is surely not Indigofera, could be any species of Crotalaria.

Me too had collected this species from Chakrata, Uttrakhand last week. I will go through this soon and will let you know.  


Crotalaria species in eFloraofindia (with details/ keys from published papers/ regional floras/ FRLHT/ FOI/ Biotik/ efloras/ books etc., where ever available) 


I got it. It is Lespedeza juncea or its some variety. Kindly validate.
