Lespedeza species so far in efi 

Does not matches with images at Lespedeza species so far in efi 

I think Campylotropis macrostyla

Thanks … for identification, it was long pending, and now I have seen this as a common plant on dry tracts..

Common around Chakrata at around 1000-1200 m.

I think Campylotropis stenocarpa as per discussions in another thread: SK 2254 28 October 2019


id request Lespedeza: 2 very high res. images.
Please check the attached images….. it seems Lespedeza for me.

Captured Silicakhal, 1200 amsl. approx.

Lespedeza floribunda Bunge ??

but according to the flora of Garhwal, Lespedeza floribunda not reported from the UK.

I am not sure if ID is correct, if yes there may be possibility. Lespedeza floribunda Bunge


This is Campylotropis stenocarpa as per images and details herein.

thank you sir, yes definitely it seems C.stenocarpa.

Just checked and verified but according to Keys for C.Stenocarpa; leaves must be subsessile and flowers must be sessile, attaching one more image of the same species in which flowers are clearly stalked.

Yes it is C. stenocarpa as per flora of Pakistan; Pedicel 3.5-8.0 mm long, not sessile.
