A botanist friend of mine ID’ed this plant as Uraria crinita.
Thanks, … Links for Uraria crinita: http://www.natureproducts.net/ornamentals/Uraria.html (pictures), http://mekarditamanku.uraria-crinita-l-desv-ex.html (details with pictures & uses).
This is Uraria picta
Desmodium species Identification help….: 5 images.
A small Desmodium plant was collected from Diglipur scrub forest,
Photos attached for identification help.
I think this a Uraria, as per comparative images herein.
Two species are reported from Andamans:
Uraria picta (Jacq.) DC.
Are there any other species reported?
Both of these appear to be different from the posted plant.
To me it appears close to images at Uraria crinita (L.) DC., which I think has not been reported from Andamans but is likely to be found as per distribution given in POWO.
Pl. check and confirm.
Uraria crinita (L.) Desv. ex DC.
