Thanks for sharing very interesting plants dear …
You got a large treasure during this trip.
Yes …, trip was really good, i have few more plants to share.. Thanks..
Any possibility of this to be Spatholobus purpureus……
No chance for Spatholobus.. Its a woody cliber, leaflets are 5 and more; flowers deep purple(almost blue); and the fruits are characteristically winged.
I suspect, some sp. of Dolichos
This is possibly Shuteria involucrata or Amphicarpaea. Most probably it is the former one.
… has rightly brought the ID to Shuteria.
I go for Shuteria vestita Wight & Arn.,which differs from S. involucrata (Wall.) Wight & Arn. in having hairy pods, which is the exact case in … pic.
Unfortunately, bot S. vestita is treated as a synonym for S. involucrata in The Plant List
Thanks … for showing this plant, I was looking for this for long, though I had once collected this from Morni Hills… unfortunately I do not have any pics of the same….
Thanks … and … for resolving the ID…. For me this was my first sighting of this plant.. Thanks again…
Taxonomy of this species seems quite confused.
