Kindly help to identify the species.
The genus is Mimosa.
I have checked the key on efloraofindia site. But it is confusing for a layman like me.
Can anybody suggest tips for identification in the field. When I visit the place next time I can look for those distinguishing characteristics.
I can post more photos if it helps in identifying the species.

Looks like Mimosa rubicaulis Lam. Please check Mimosa !
Can you show us the number of pinnae in a leaf clearly, to go through the keys and finally decide on the species ?
agree with … need to count the pinnae, before the key….. otherwise this is a dx stop at Mimosa sp.
I counted the pinnae at few places. The average is 13 to 16 pairs.
I am also attaching two photos for your reference.
If this is not sufficient I will do another field trip in future.
Thanks, …, You are giving is no. of leaflet pairs.
But this is a compound leaf with many pinnae. Each pinnae has many pair of leaflets. Pl. see
I will also go with … for Mimosa rubicaulis Lam.
Pinnae should be 4 to 6.
