Fabaceae sp ? (15.09.2010 NSJ): Seems to be Fabaceae sp. Found on the way to Ajinkya Tara – Satara.
A climber around 3′ high. Flower size 10 mm. Date Sep 10, 2010

I think this could be a species of Genus Blepharis; Acanthaceae

… this looks more of a Papilionaceous flower … seems to belong to Fabaceae.
Not seen this plant yet.

a Fabaceae member for sure. a new plant for me

After seeing todays posting by …, i feel the flowers posted by you could be some Lespedeza sp. Just check this once with your set of photographs.

This is

Macrotyloma uniflorum (Lam.) Verdc. of Fabaceae, an exotic cultivated herbaceous climber.
