Images not so good quality due to very long shot !
Fabaceae …???

Pl. check
Was it near habitat?

It was in wild and located at the edge of the forest about 60/70 ft. above the road so the images could not be  better.

However, it is not in the vicinity of people habitat.


I asked you because pods looked like that.


Yes …, it looks like but I guess it is some wild sp.

Unusual flowering in this season.

Appear closer to Desmodium elegans.


Only confusion is the flowering season and seed pods which looks different !

Yes, your confusion is valid. Pods are different than Desmodium, no constriction between two seeds!

I wonder what it could be then?



Could not find a match as per images at Fabaceae (Leguminosae)

Is it a climber


Thanks, … Appears so from the habit image in the first picture.

I guess it is a shrub.

climber: or shrub

Scandent / Dangling


so you have pictures of the stem that was dangling? was it woody, hairy etc


Sorry, I could hardly pull the small part of it. By the way stem looks strong and thick like finger !


Flower, calyx remind me of Canavalia sp.


It is not listed in Nepal ! Some Canavalia is syn with Dolichos but not matching.
I guess it is then same one from my earlier post but not yet identified.

Do you have any habit image ?


Unfortunately, no. Actually I saw a couple of flowers lying on the floor and looked for the mother plant but did not find. After a few distance I saw a branch dangling down and pulled it. It looked like scandent shrub rather than a climber.


OK, …


Haymondia wallichii (DC.) A.N.Egan & B.Pan ??
Syn : Pueraria wallichii DC. ??

That is how I came to guess about the ID. Do you think it is correct ?


I think so. Fabaceae is enormous.

I wonder how you came to this Genus !!


I was checking the drawings of Stainton book and it struck my mind and searched the net and came across POWO image.


I also agree with the id as matching with leaf venation and flowers per the following:
