Legume from West Bengal for Id: Request for Id
Collected from West Bengal Buxa Tiger Reserve
Habit – A Liana


Nice photographs. Looks like some Winged beans.


… After observing the flowers and the woody legume, my guess goes with Genus Millettia. But cant assign it to any spp.


As collected later from the same area and identified by Dr.  Anant Kumar, this is Milletia glaucescens.
