Please help me to identify this liane found in the rain forests of western ghats. Leaflet size: 15×5 cm; pod size: 6-8cm long
Place: Vaalparai, TN
Date: 12 July 2012
Habitat: Rain forest
Alt.: 950 m asl


It seems to be Millettia rubiginosa Wight & Arn.


Many thanks …, I referred Flora of British India (Vol.II) and the character matches. The flowers may confirm the identity much easier.
