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) @ http://www.planetefleurs.fr/Systematique/Fabaceae/Crotal05a.htm !
Crotalaria quinquefolia (Wikipedia) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Crotalaria_quinquefolia_W_IMG_2170.jpg
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.
Agree with …, this is C. grahamiana Wight & Arn. In C. quinquefolia leaves are narrower.
