Fabaceae-Faboideae (Papilionaceae) Week: Desmodium microphyllum????? from Assan barrage Dakpathar: This small herb photographed along Assan barrage Dakpathar in September, appears to be Desmodium microphyllum with rounded leaflet apex. Kindly give your opinion


It looks me like Desmodium heterocarpon


Desmodium heterocarpon is a much larger shrub with leaflets longer than 3 cm and flowers in a terminal or axillary up to 7 cm long raceme.

This one was a much smaller plant, leaflets barely 1 cm or less long and flowers in few-flowered raceme.

Flora of Chakrata: Desmodium sp.4 for id:  This yet another Desmodium sp. was shot in September 2011 from Chakrata and neighbourhood….which sp. is this? I hope these pics can help identify..


I think same D. triflorum


Thanks for inputs sir, this does not appear same to me…though not clear in the pics, but leaves here are not trifoliate, leaf(lets) not emarginate…moreover the pedicels are hairy…hoping for reconsideration….


Yes …, the leaves appear to be simple. Let us wait to get ID


This is Desmodium microphyllum


Thanks … for inputs..perhaps more investigation is required….Please go through this link..


I think … is correct, as was tentative identification of my plant in the link. According to Flora of China 1-foliate condition is common in D. microphyllum.

Thanks … for your independant conclusion which helps settling about my plant also.


It means the plant posted in the above link is not D. microphyllum (and may be D. triflorum)…


Yes …, still some confusion. Three plants and only two names:

Syn: Hedysarum microphyllum Thunb.
Trailing to erect perennial herb ; leaves trifoliate with elliptic-obovate  to oblong leaflets up to 10 mm long, petiole 3-4 mm long; Flowers pink often tinged with blue in up to 10-flowered raceme; bract boat-shaped; pedicel up to 12 mm long; calyx lobes linear; keel longer than wings; pod 10-12 mm long, 2-3 mm broad, 3-4 jointed.

Perhaps similar to Desmodium microphyllum  but with less flattened pods., photographed from the same area on Chakrata Tiger fall road in September


Desmodium microphyllum

Fabaceae-Faboideae (Papilionaceae) Week: perhaps Desmodium sp for ID from Chakrata Tiger fall road: Small herbaceous plant perhaps a species of Desmodium with flowers in small clusters, bluish and 3-4 seeded more or less flattened pods. Photographed from Chakrata Tiger fall road in September.


Mine also still unided Sir


I think it is Desmodium microphyllum (Thung.) DC. This grows in waste places and along road side, also very common inside pine forest and it can go upto 2200m


Desmodium microphyllum

Please validate the id of this herb, recorded from Chakrata..

Earlier deliberations led me to Desmodium microphyllum..


Indeed it is Desmodium microphyllum

Please suggest if this herb, from Gori valley, can be Desmodium microphyllum or otherwise..

Fabaceae-Faboideae (Papilionaceae) Week : Shrubs/Herbs :Plant for ID 17/11/2011 SMP1: A small herb with trifoliate leaves.
Can this be Desmodium trifolium ?


Rachis, pedicel, calyx with long spreading hairs, flowers more than 3, flowers pink….could be Desmodium microphyllum


I also think close to the images at Desmodium microphyllum (Thunb.) DC.

In this case also only POWO showing Leptodesmia microphylla (Thunb.) H.Ohashi & K.Ohashi as the accepted name and the CoL and GBIF as D. microphyllum !

Yes. Matches with images at Desmodium microphyllum (Thunb.) DC.

Again seen in a grassland in Nasik.


Desmodium triflorum


Pl. post a high resolution image to check the details.


Here it is..

I feel more likely to be Desmodium microphyllum rather than Desmodium triflorum, as per images and details herein.
