Gori Valley Tour: Legume 2 for id: This one was another leguminous herb shot from near Chokori..

plant erect.. stiff with trifoliate leaves… pinkish, very small flowers.. less than 1 cm across… uniquely shaped flat, deeply constricted pods….
id help is requested..


The fruits somewhat resemble that of Desmodium glutinosum. But the leaves look different.


This is Desmodium podocarpum.


Thanks … and …i for these leads.. this one is closer to D. podocarpum


Please also check for Desmodium laxum.


It appears to me as Hylodesmus laxum (DC.) H.Ohashi & R.R.Mill (= Desmodium laxum DC.)


Thanks a lot … for valuable lead.. I think we should wait for further inputs….
