A small creeper.
Wild
Flowers yellowish – appear to be pea-like.
Leaves: trifoliate with ovate leaflets
Photographed: 2nd Sept 2010
Location: Delhi (Garden of five senses)
The ovate leaflets seen in the foreground belong to this plant. One can also see a leaf of Tiger Foot Morning Glory!
Please identify!


Could this be Rhynchosia minima?


Rhynchosia minima is also the call from me


Identity is a question mark. R.minima is a slender trailing annual with small obtuse leaflets and small yellow flowers – seen in Southern India in Karnataka. However, a variant var. laxiflora has larger leaflets and acute at apex-  reported from Southern India.
Better to check Flora of Delhi by Maheswari before arriving at any conclusion.


I find these closer to images at Rhynchosia minima (L.) DC.

Identification of Rhynchosia sp. : 5 posts by 2 authors. Attachments (6)

Kindly help me to identify the enclosed specimen of Rhynchosia
The plant was observed at Sattankulam, Tuticorin Dist. Tamilnadu

The entire plant is pubescent.


Pl confirm that whether it could be Rhynchosia minima var. memnonia (Delile) T.Cooke


It is Rhynchosia minima.

I am not sure about the variety


Thank you Sir. In Rhynchosia minimaRacemes 6-12-flowered, short-peduncled, usually exceeding the leaves. But in the specimen racemes laxer 2-3 flowered and the leaves are larger than R. minima and vestiture.


 

 

Pl. also check with images at Rhynchosia aurea (Willd.) DC. 


 

It looks like Rhynchosia aurea


Pods look different from those at Rhynchosia aurea

Can it be Rhynchosia minima ?


By the look of it, yes. Pod size equal to or less than 2 cm will be confirmatory.

Flowers are not showing red brown streaks, but that is common and variable,


Flowering phenology? Does the elevation match ? 900-2500 m. according to the FoC !


I think that it could be Rhynchosia minima var. memnonia (Delile) T.Cooke
