This herb was shot from Panipat..
Please provide id hints, I think this can be Medicago lupulina..!!


I also think this can be Medicago lupulina..!!



Trifolium sp for id from Panipat-26032011-1:
pls help in Id of this small spreading Trifolium herb. Shot today (27.3.11) from a bank of small water channel
My guess is Trifolium campestre


Medicago lupulinaTrifolium would have palmate compound leaves, all three leaflets of same stalk length. Here middle has much longer stalk, hence pinnate trifoliate.


your guess was right, it is Trifolium campestre


Appears more closer to images at Medicago lupulina rather than those at  Trifolium campestre Schreb.
