vigna caracalla i think
some body showed this here not too long ago but I cant find it under vigna caracalla… is there under some synonym ?

i wonder

Vigna species in eFIoraofindia (with details/ keys from published papers/ regional floras/ FRLHT/ FOI/ efloras/ books etc., where ever available)

Possibly Dysolobium, cf. D.grande Prain

i dont know  … and your link is all in chinese or some such

dont know what it says

Yes, the link i have provided is troublesome, i give you another link, though still chinese – http://www.cfh.ac.cn/spdb/TaxonNodeTree.aspx?spid=23361 and a KEW herbarium of the species – http://apps.kew.org/herbcat/getImage.do?imageBarcode=K000900620.
The genus Phaseolus, in FBI, is featured with twisted/spiral keel and thus separated from Vigna. Sir Prain redefined Phaseolus velutinus of FBI as Dysolobium grande.
There are two Vigna caracalla as far as my search goes – one is Vigna adenantha (G.Mey.) Marechal & al., which I targeted first, but has glabrous pods; and the other is Vigna caracalla (L.) Verdc., where pods are much narrow as per pictures found in the net, and I have doubt over its distribution in NE India.

Thank you … you are thorough but this is beyond my capacity
some botanists expert in vigna / beans need to look at this

Any possibility to ID with these leaves??

Pl. check comparative images at Fabaceae, if by chance you get a match.   

Leaf venation seams to match with Dysolobium grande (Benth.) Prain 
Flora of China mentions its distribution in Nepal.
Also check Mucuna and Phaseolus species listed in Nepal.
