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
.
As per efi thread :
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;

Putting descriptions of both likely species of Teramnus:
Teramnus mollis Benth.

In the posted plant, axillary inflorescence longer than 4 cm, about 15 cm long, fruit tip abruptly curved inside, does not look hooked at apex.
Please guide.


Yes …, this is Teramnus mollis

In T. labialis fruit is not hairy.

Teramnus mollis.


Now called Teramnus labialis var. mollis. Please check this link

Thanks … for the link. Had checked the Flora of Pakistan and The Plant List; in both these sources, Teramnus mollis Benth. is considered the accepted name while Teramnus labialis var. mollis Baker is treated as its synonym

Need id for this creeper

1 December 19
Agra, U.P.

Could be Teramnus.


Teramnus mollis ??


Teramnus labialis is commonly seen…


Pretty hairy … I have Teramnus labialis and Teramnus mollis, both in my area and I differentiate them by lot of straight erect hairs on mature pods being T. mollis  ….otherwise, leaflet size and presence of hairs on leaf, inflorescence etc, flower color  is variable. … should find mature pods.

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 think, in view of above, it may be Teramnus mollis


Thanks …  Will check for pods.

Rural Surat, Gujarat, 29 10 2019
Hairs on back of leaflets  
Hairy pod
Very tiny flower 
Calyx …Teeth long, upper side of leaflets
No long racemes here … in fact its inflorescence I’ll have to check out further

Yes, I agree with your id.
