Identification of Infigofera sp. : 4 posts by 2 authors. Attachments (3)
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

Indeed, the photos show different pods in each photo; certainly we are looking at different plants.
The 1st photo must be most probably of Indigofera prostrata Willd. just as you suggested.
Dear all,
Please ignore the 2nd photo in this post.
I am going to upload the 2nd photo as a separate observation in iNaturalist – and re-post it here with the suggested ID of Alysicarpus hamosus Edgew.
