Pl help me to identify the attached specimen from Fabaceae
Observed at Thirumoorthy Hills, Tamil Nadu
Moderately branched slender vine with trifoliate leaves. Petiole prominent. Central leaflet rhomboid and bigger than the lateral. Lower calyx lobe longer than the rest. Keel narrow, curved, rounded at the end in a semicircle. Pods elongated, flat and curved at the end.
Description matches with Cochlianthus gracilis. But not reported from TN.
Pl. check Dysolobium pilosum or similar species or genera.
Any lead in the matter so far ?
No Sir. I expect experts in Fabaceae to help.
Did standard have a appendage?
Were leaves pubescent or glabrous?
1. I have not observed the appendages on the standard
2. Leaves are glabrous.
Dsylobium sp. possible.
Unable to help further.
