Thanks, …, for important uploads.
Indigofera parviflora B. Heyne ex Wight & Arn. is now Synonym of Indigastrum parviflorum (B. Heyne ex Wight & Arn.) Schrire subsp. parviflorum var. parviflorum as per GRIN updated in May 2010.


This specimens is not Indigofera parviflora. It appears to be a interesting specimen. I need to examine the specimens. Can arrange to send pressed and dried specimens with field data for correct identification. It is incorrect to identify species based on mere photographs. Only practicing taxonomists and experts on particular families may identify based on photos, but it should be confirmed based on study of specimens. In legumes we usually require specimens in flowers and fruits for correct identification.

The images of Indigofera parviflora could be Indigifera angulosa if the photographs are taken from plants of either Bundelkhand, MP, Rajasthan (Eastern Parts and Mt Abu), Gujarat. Fruits will decide the species identity. An allied species from Western Ghats is Indigofera constricta is from Mahrashtra, Karnataka and Kerala), it has larger leaflets and longer and many-seeded pods.


I agree with what … said about Legume identification. Not only legumes but also all flowering plants need complete specimens for better identification. Any way this is not Indigofera constricta. The inflorescence looks little longer than in I. constricta. If you could arrange pressed specimens, please send to him or to me if … is busy with any revisions on Indian legumes. The leaflets are similar to Indigofera angulosa
