PLANT FOR ID 105 SMP JUN 09 Lahaul- Spiti:  These small Fabaceae members were seen frequently in Lahaul Spiti valley. It is very difficult to pin point on the species.
Some experts may comment on this one….
Caragana/Astragalus/ Chesneya or something else?
I have some other snaps with different characters which I would post separately.


A better view of leaves should help. Could be Lotus corniculatus but more photographs should help


Yes Lotus corniculatus

This was at 3200m, with flowers mostly in pairs ranging from pale yellow to deep orange. Could this be Lotus corniculata?

Yes Lotus corniculata (Fabaceae).


While I was at Ilaqa, I went looking for the plants I had photographed last year in September (… had helped identify this one). I found this quite easily and you can see why. I am sharing some photos here.
