This seems to be Aeschynomene indica L., growing in a ditch.
Can this not be a Sesbania??
Without pod it’s hard for me to tell if it can be Sesbania or Aeschynomene. Of the five species of Sesbania in eFI, i think this is none of them. Moreover, leaves & leaflets are much smaller in this plant than any Sesbania known to me (3 species). I am not sure if it can be a sixth species of Sesbania.
This is not –
“Bengal Plants” do not have any more Sesbania.
You must have received the last mail I have sent you minutes ago. I drafted that mail about a fortnight ago, but i didn’t send.
May i ask you How or Why did you suspect that this species in this thread could be Sesbania?
I am attaching update today. It is not Aeschynomene indica L.
I think it is Aeschynomene uliginosa Roxb., the current accepted name of which is Sesbania uliginosa Sweet, as per The Plant List.
Found this straggling herb in an uncultivated moist land where i found the “ornamental malvaceae“.

H & H : herb, growing diagonally, about 2.5 feet high; leaflets 30 pairs, rachis about 12 cm; pods about 8.5 cm; seeds many
