Flowers bicoloured, pubescent at apex. So it is Mucuna macrocarpa Wall.
Yes this is Mucuna monosperma. please wait for the fruit.

Could you pl. post a high resolution image?
Any idea about the genus?
It may be Mucuna.
Mucuna bracteata, M.imbricata, M.monosperma, M.nigricans and M.pruriens are recorded in Mizoram
Looks different from other species as per comparative images at Mucuna and pods in GBIF of M.nigricans (specimen), of Mucuna bracteata (specimen)
That is what I stated.
Please forgive me for hi jacking this thread. While in Sikkim in 2011 I took a single pic showing a flower that looks to me identical to the one in this thread. I had thought it to be cauliflory and thought maybe Mucuna sp? Please would you learned people see if you agree.
Yes seems similar.
