Different books and efloras give different and contradicting keys, which are not actually correct on all accounts:

Book image in the Flora of Peninsular India gives, two sets of keys, out of which first set (based on calyx) may not be correct. Keys in 2nd set are below:
Leaflets ovate, acute, nearly glabrous, racemes very slender, near glabrous, pod glabrous- Teramnus labialis
Leaflets ovate- lanceolate, acute, strigosely hairy, racemes slender, villous with spreading hairs, pod villous- Teramnus mollis
I found the following entries in the “Bengal Plants”, on Teramnus species :-
(i) leaflets small, acute or sub-obtuse; racemes elongated, usually stalked. Leaflets membranous, sparsely hirsute; calyx teeth as long as tube —– T. labialis Spreng. (a slender twining species in all provinces).
(ii) leaflets small, acute or sub-obtuse; racemes elongated, usually stalked. Leaflets sub-coriaceous, densely pubescent beneath; calyx teeth shorter than tube —– T. debilis Prain (Syn. of Teramnus mollis Benth.) (a slender twining species in C. & E, Bengal).
(iii) leaflets large, acuminate or acute; racemes congested, sessile; calyx teeth shorter than tube —– T. flexilis Benth. (a rather robust twining species in Sundribuns and Chittagong).
In another common species Teramnus labialis have glabrous pods, while they are hairy in Teramnus mollis;

trifol fab tiny flr Hooghly 25-01-13 sk: Found this twiner beside a pond, climbing on a Bauhinia sapling.

Species : UNKNOWN
H & H : slim twiner beside a pond, seems to be not ornamental or planted
Date : 24/1/13

Place : Hooghly


Seems to me Teramnus volubilis!


Thank you very much Sir for the probable ID, found similar image at – http://www.flickr.com/photos/plantaspinunsulaosa/5734562079/in/photostream/.


Teramnus volubilis seems to be is restricted to the Americas as per the following links:
Is it cultivated in India ?
OTHER TWO SPECIES ALREADY DISCUSSED AT EFI ARE

Teramnus mollis


I found the following entries in the “Bengal Plants”, on Teramnus species :-
(i) leaflets small, acute or sub-obtuse; racemes elongated, usually stalked. Leaflets membranous, sparsely hirsute; calyx teeth as long as tube —– T. labialis Spreng. (a slender twining species in all provinces).
(ii) leaflets small, acute or sub-obtuse; racemes elongated, usually stalked. Leaflets sub-coriaceous, densely pubescent beneath; calyx teeth shorter than tube —– T. debilis Prain (a slender twining species in C. & E, Bengal).
(iii) leaflets large, acuminate or acute; racemes congested, sessile; calyx teeth shorter than tube —– T. flexilis Benth. (a rather robust twining species in Sundribuns and Chittagong).
So, this species seems to be the T. labialis Spreng.
I thank all, specially … for introducing me to this genus.

I believe … is now able to resolve the identity.

Taken on 27/8/13 at VJBU or Jijamata Udyan in Mumbai.

Could not focus on the flower being very tiny


It could possibly be Teramnus labialis.

Thanks a lot.

Seems to be the right id.


Difficult to photograph because the flowers are tiny. Sending a few photographs.
My photographs of Teramnus labialis var. mollis are available at this link

Nice photographs ! Mine are also currently flowering at my farm. Sending some of my photographs. [The last is from a previous year to showcase the densely hairy pods which essentially differentiates it from T.labialis which has glabrous pods].


Many thanks … for showing your photos and for the differentiating feature among the two close species.
BUT my concern is about the status of this Teramnus labialis (L.) Spreng var. mollis (Wt. & Arn.).
Not finding it at The Plants List.
Hoping to get some clarity in this regard.


FOP shows only Terammus labialis var. mollis Baker (Syn. of Teramnus mollis Benth.) as per link:
The Plant List also shows similar names as per link:

Where did you get the name Teramnus labialis (L.) Spreng var. mollis (Wt. & Arn.) from ?


These may of Teramnus labialis (L.f.) Spreng. as per keys and details herein.


 

Thanks very much … I have corrected the labels of these photos at flickr.


This one is Teramnus flexilis, it seems … as per key on Teramnus page !

……

I have got T. labialis and T. mollis in abundance in Surat !


Thanks … for the possibility.

I will wait for validating comments.


…, the post I quoted is by … from Hooghly, WB, very much from the described distribution for T. flexilis.

Your specimen is T. labialis, simply on account of being minimally hairy !!

Teramnus labialis ? : 5 posts by 5 authors. 8 images.

Presenting, what I think is Teramnus labialis, for deliberation.

29 10 2019, rural Surat. Gujarat .
This species has less hairs, leaflets relatively larger, pods longer and straight, tip beaked and pointing sideways. 
Calyx teeth are definitely not shorter than calyx tube.
This is how leaflets lie in sun !
Hairs present, not too much !
Lax raceme
Tiny flower
Calyx !!!
Straight flat long pods …almost no hairs
Older pods.

I hope you’re right …,  I too collected this from Gujarat,


Yes, it is Termanus labialis


Yes, I also agree.
