Very nice pictures … It is a species of Rynchosia, probably R. cyanosperma? (cyan = blue; sperm = seed).
I think you tried to mean Rhynchosia cyanosperma. According to plant list R. cyanosperma is now considered as a synonym of Rhynchosia hirta. Thanks
for the ID quite and interesting looking plant
Plant for ID – 06022012 Sirumalai -1 – Fabaceae: Please id this plant
Location: Sirumali Forest, Dindigul
Date : 6th Feb 2012
Habitat : Semievergreen forest

Altitute : abt 500 metres
One of the Fabaceae member. Could this be a species of Vigna!
This should be Rhynchosia hirta. The seeds are bluish.
The flowers were almost greenish and not not more than 1.5cm across; the whole plant (climber-shrub) was hairy.
I agree with … This does look like Rhynchosia hirta. I had seen this at Yana, Karnataka.
Beautiful pics.. This could be Rhynchosia hirta..
