flowers of Oxytropis cachemiriana from Nubra Valley, Ladakh


I have been checking the entries on your site for different Oxytropis recorded for Ladakh.

Took a look at O.cachemiriana see: efi thread
This reminded me (I had looked at the images previously) that this is definitely not an Oxytropis. As far as I know, none in this genus are shrubs.
I would think the images taken in Nubra are of Sophora moorcroftiana its seeds pods are distinctive with constrictions between the seeds.
