Thanks Sir, it means we have seen 3 similar looking species and i missed two out of them.


This looks like cassia wallichiana which also snaped by me from my nearby office during last years.


Cassia wallichiana DC. is a synonym of Chamaecrista leschenaultiana as indicated by me above. Thanks …, that confirms my identification.

Devgad, Kokan, MH :: Chamaecrista mimosoides for validation :: ARK2021-060: 6 images.

This yellow flower was captured near Devgad, coastal Kokan, MH in Aug 2021.
It was found flowering on a lateritic rock
Guessing it to be Chamecrista mimosoides.
Requesting to please validate.


Seems to Chamaecrista pumila ma’am, once again check,


Thanks … for the possible ID.
A relook at the pics suggest:
– no stalked gland at the base of the leaves
– number of pairs of leaflets (<20)
– petals as long as or longer than sepals
– stamens 5-6

Is there any other characteristics that could point us to the right ID?


With these characters, it may be Chamaecrista leschenaultiana (DC.) Degener as per keys at Chamaecrista.

Stamens may be 7.
