Common name: Wedge-Leaf Taverniera, East-indian Moneywort • Hindi: Jethmad

Please suggest id for this shrub recorded from Morni Hills, Haryana…
I think generic level id is right..!!

Not Indigofera to me

I do not have any record of Indigofera and i won’t be able to say if it can be / cannot be Indigofera. I would rather like to learn why it cannot be Indigofera. is it because of fruit/legume?

Assuming … is correct (again i would like to say if … played opposite role in this thread i would have taken … is correct) I searched alternative probable id. What i find depends on Nidhan Sir’s verdict –

Please also note, in Taverniera nummularia DC. Fl. Br. Ind. ii. 140, the wings are significantly shorter (thank standard and keel). Please also refer to Wight. Ic. Pl. t 1055.

Thanks a lot … for giving initial lead, … for digging out the id with pertinent links..

As this is not earlier recorded from my state, I was not aware and took this as any species of Indigofera..
