Crotalaria calycina ?;

Requesting ID for this Fabaceae herb.
Location: Kusur- Lonavala.


Seems to be Crotalaria. Will look forward to its ID.

I may have posted one similar sighting from Tung.


Crotalaria species in eFloraofindia (with details/ keys from published papers/ regional floras/ FRLHT/ FOI/ Biotik/ efloras/ books etc., where ever available on net) 


Could it be Crotalaria calycina ?


It will be helpful if short description is provide about the plant: Viz. habit, height of the plant, presence of stipule or otherwise etc.

Crotalaria ¿ mysorensis ?

Could this erect hairy herb, about 2 – 3 ft tall be Crotalaria mysorensis ?

efi page on Crotalaria mysorensis   
Leaves does not seem to match with images at Crotalaria mysorensis


I think this must be Crotalaria calycina; dear friends, please validate.


I think the original ID is correct. It resembles C. mysorensis, especially the indumentum (hairyness) and calyx characters, rather than C. calycina.


Thank you very much …

After reading through description in Flora of China and seeing crisp picture of your plant in flickr, I do not see the conspicuous stipule in my posted plant. Do the stipules have tendency to fall off ?

It would be better if you could upload a clear leaf picture and habit of the plant for easy identification
