Pl. help me in identifying the attached Indigofera specimen observed at Puzhal. Chennai, Tamilnadu. on 03-01-2016
It is a prostrate herb forming a mate on the ground. Fruit is 4 angled 2-3 at each node.
I suggest Indigofera trita ssp. trita.
After going thro’ the article “Revision of Trifoliate Indigofera species” forwarded by …, I infer that the species may be Indigofera prostrata (Fruits slightly winged),
Please help to validate the species
