¿ Alysicarpus ?

Dear friends, please help with ID.
I find … suggestion (in facebook) of Alysicarpus a very good possibility.
This plant is a small bushy shrub about 6 feet high; the flowers measure about 20 mm across.
The place is Gudampara near Chinnakanal, Munnar, elevation about 1500m asl.


It will be Desmodium species


It appears to me it is a Desmodium species


This one is not Alysicarpus Neck ex Desv., But it is Desmodium Desv. and precisely Desmodium ferrugenium Wall. ex Thw.
See my publication entitled as ” Notes on the status of Desmodium wynaadense Bedd. ex Gamble” published in Rheedea.”


It is Desmodium ferrugineum Wall. ex Thw. ssp. ferrugineum (Syn: Desmodium polycarpum (Poir. ) DC. var. fischeri Gamble= D.rufescens sensu Wight & Arn. non DC.)
