Small plant with flat pods seen at Gangapur Grasslands on 15th Oct,15.

There were no flowers when the picture was taken.
Unfortunately, I have only one picture.
Leaves very close to Mimosa Species.


it is Cassia sps


Thanks for the id.
… too has suggested Cassia mimosoides or Cassia pumila.
Will try to locate the plant and see if I can capture it flowering.


This should be Neptunia triquetra (Vahl) Benth.

A small, prostrate, perennial herb with 2-pinnate leaves, yellow flowers and with 2-2.5cm long oblong, flat beaked pods.
