On 11/10/09 in Ananthagiri HIll forest in Rangareddy district of Andhra Pradesh.
Please check with Rhyncosia aurea of Fabaceae.
Rhyncosia aurea is a syn. of Rhyncosia capitata as per link:
& seems to differ form my posted pictures as per links:
http://efloras.org/object_page.aspx?object_id=53841&flora_id=5 (illustration- FOI)
and also not there in Forest Flora of AP as per link:
It appears like Rhynchosia minima L. (DC.) as per links:
http://forest.ap.nic.in/Forest%20Flora%20of%20Andhra%20Pradesh/files/ff0526.htm (Forest Flora of AP)
On further checking, I find it more closer to images at Rhynchosia suaveolens (L.f.) DC.
