Need help to ID this Atylosia sp
Place: Assam

Interesting plant
Appears to be a climber with trifoliate leaves. Terminal inflorescence; hairy ; with many flowers BLUE. The name of the genus Atylosia has been changed for some plants I suppose. Can’t comment on the ID as I am not conversant with local flora

Yes most of plants are changed to Cajanus

It looks like Glycine tomentella

This ie neither Atylosia nor Cajanus.This is Calpogonium mucunoides

Calpogonium mucunoides

The Image is of Desmodium scorpiurus (Sw.) Desv..

On checking, it appears closer to images of Calopogonium mucunoides & not that of Desmodium scorpiurus

Please check the fruit for confirmation of Calopogonium mucunoides.
