An interesting plant from Fabaceae for ID. Shrub of height around 4-5 feet.
Munnar Dec2009.

Crotalaria quinquefolia

C. grahamiana as per another thread.


Fabaceae-Faboideae (Papilionaceae) Week : Shrubs/Herbs : Crotalaria quinquefolia: Crotalaria quinquefolia
Observed in Munnar. Kerala in Dec

The shape of the leaflets reminds me of C. grahamiana. In Crotalaria quinquefolia, I think the leaflets are narrower, I guess

Considering this plant is from Munnar possibilities are high for C. grahamiana
To my surprise I could see one plant idied as Crotalaria quinquefolia has even simple leaf (one foliolate) @ !
Here it looks like the inflorescence is much longer than C. grahamiana
I shall refer flora records tomorrow and get back.

Yes I very much agree with you … Was not aware of this species. The leaves are certainly different here.
Thanks for providing links for C.grahamiana.

Agree with …, this is C. grahamiana Wight & Arn. In C. quinquefolia leaves are narrower.
