I request the members to identify the following Acasia eburnean?

Yes. Good images of Vachellia eburnea. What is the locality and habitat? 

Thanks …, this spiny shrub is from thorny shrub forest area, Telangana


Acacia shrub SN13421: 2 high resolution images.
Wild acacia from Ballarpur area of Maharashtra

I could not find a match as per comparative images at Acacia

Prosopis ? But could not find a match.

Any pic or information about inflorescense, color of flower etc. Can check with two species of Prosipis (P. alba and P. palida) in addition to P. Juliflora. But definitely it’s not P. cineraria. India has 14 native species of Acacia now have new name Vachellia for Indian or African origin.

Both species mentioned are not reported from India as per POWO 1 and POWO 2 and also look different.
Leaves look different from images at Prosopis juliflora
One more species i.e. Prosopis farcta is reported in FoPI, but looks different as per Feedipedia

It is matching with Acacia eburnea
