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

ID please … (family: Fabaceae)
Habit: herbaceous climber
Habitat: along forest trail in evergreen forest

Flower about 20 mm across.
Bee Falls – very popular tourist place. Large evergreen patch of forest around this water falls – a very good place for exploring flora.

… missed to add this photo showing a glimpse of pod. Hopefully it helps to ID.


it appears to be Macrotyloma uniflorum. I am attaching my photo taken at Satara.


Yes …, the flower seems to match – though I am not fully confident because views are from different angle. I hope we get comment(s) soon. Thank you very very much.

Fabaceae (Faboideae) Fortnight :: Phaseolus vulgaris for validation :: Chakrata :: NS OCT 98/98 : 6 posts by 3 authors. 3 correct images as above.
Please validate or correct the id of this cultivated legume, recorded from Chakrata area…!!
Is this Phaseolus vulgaris?


Thanks, … I think you are right. Pl. see Phaseolus vulgaris


Yes it is


I don’t think it is Phaseolus vulgaris L. It’s possibly a Vigna species.


First i will tell you why it is not Phaseolus vulgaris L. In Phaseolus corolla morphology is different than Vigna or Dolichos like regular legume species. please check foc illustration (specially no.2 and 5) –http://www.efloras.org/object_page.aspx?object_id=116327&flora_id=2. Corolla in Phaseolus mostly features-
  1. standard suborbicular, quite different to other legume genera
  2. wings equalling or exceeding standard
  3. keel beaked, spiral
  4. in P. v. calyx teeth is much smaller
  5. in P. v. flower is subtended by persistent ovate bracteoles
The correct species images can be seen at efi thread
My guess is that you identified your species based on uploads like – efi thread
Now, I will try to identify your species, featured by regular legume flower, long calyx teeth-
  1. please check http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/showimage/265239/ (efi also features this species)
  2. for varieties check tropicalforages
  3. though your 2nd pic seems to show cylindrical pod but immature pods are flattened (compressed) as can be seen in 5th pic of efi thread
  4. hint of flattened pod can also be seen in your 1st pic

Your species is Macrotyloma uniflorum (Lam.) Verdc.


well, Sir, here is more authentic image of Phaseolus vulgaris – http://www.kew.org/science-conservation/plants-fungi/phaseolus-vulgaris-common-bean


Phaseolus vulgaris is not one plant type

its a group of large numbers of beans  haricot beans… kidney beans, french beans, navy beans white beans , etc have about 14,000 cultivars …  with flowers in lax, axillary few-flowered (12) racemes, zygomorphic, variegated, white, pink, or purplish, ca 1 cm long (from the same James DUke Book)  when one cooks them they all feel and taste different. and their nutrition values are different and their lectin contents and their toxicites are different.
Yet botanically all are classified as Phaseolus vulgaris L.
and this shows a few of the varieties of Phaseolus vulgaris seeds
SO what Kew is showing is not academically correct to represent the 14,000+ cv s flowers which sho w differences
it may be just as an example
… original picture shows the so called french bean of vegetable garden variety with creamy flowers
if it were Kulath Kalai or horse gram as has been suggested those beans look different and are shorter  and much flatter and wider than shown in Gurcharnji’s pictures and Nidhan’s pictures
that’s just an opinion of a gardener
Its upto qualified Botanists to decide, … is one himself
… do you have follow up on your case
did you allow the plant to maturity and look at the beans as they matured? and seeds??
were they one of the many // regular beans or Kulathi


I think There is no reason to confuse this plant with Macrotyloma uniflorum whose pods and seeds are so different. We have been growing this plant in our house, harvesting its pods and seeds for many years. Here is how Macrotyloma uniflorum looks
gene.affrc 

Thanks a lot, … But why flowers (including the calyx) look so different from images at Phaseolus vulgaris ?
Is there any mix up of images ?

I have downloaded and looked at the images. … doubt is valid, calyx lobes are much longer (1 mm in P. vulgaris, 3-8 mm in M. uniflorum), though fruit looks longer (4-5 cm long in M. uniflorum, 10-15 cm P. vulgaris), purple spot on upper petal goes in favour of M. uniflorum. The deciding factor would be style if visible (style thinner in lower part, thicker upper part coiling more than 360 degrees in P. vulgaris; style not divided into distinct thinner and thicker parts, much shorter, not coiled in M. uniflorum)


Yes !


Finally I think all three images belong to Macrotyloma uniflorum,  image 1 has both typical flower of this species, so are image 4 and 5. Image 2 seems to mixed up fruit of Phaseolus vulgaris.

Sorry for Kashmir in subject line


Nice Shots Sir here are mines from same Place.
9 images.


Nice upload of French beans. Crisp green

Flowers look different in your first photo compared to flowers in other photos.
Is there any mix-up ?

… images look similar to yours (except flowers in your first image) except for the pod, which appears slightly different to me. Also check your leaves in the first image compared to the leaves in … post.


I think its horse gram relatives. FRUITS  and FLOWERS show similarities


All images except for 2nd image are of Macrotyloma uniflorum


These are also of Macrotyloma uniflorum

Habit : Wild
Macrotyloma biflorum var. biflorum ??
Listed in Book !


Macrotyloma uniflorum as per images and details herein.

Macrotyloma biflorum does not have distribution in our area as per POWO and CoL.


Macrotyloma biflorum var. biflorum listed in the Book of Karnali !

Maybe wrong.


OK …


Only Macrotyloma uniflorum listed in the Checklist of Nepal.


Yes that is correct. Many sp. are listed in the book as a probability and we have found existence of some sp. What about the I. devendrae in another post ?  Is that correct?
I guess this sp. is not listed in Nepal so far and looks like new to Nepal.
