Observed in Javvadu Hills, Thiruvannamalai Dist, Tamilnadu
A large climber with trifoliate leaves. Middle is larger than the lateral ones. Inflorescence axillary, erect.
I infer Rhychosia acutissima.
Pl offer your observations.
Could be Rhyncosisa sp?? Rhynchosia
…, any pods ? Full front view of leaf too !
Whether it could be Rhynchosia bracteata ?
I could not find any image or herbarium on search in net.
As per Gamble FPM, it may be R.accussima or R.sericea; the leaves are long acuminate, 8-12cm long; pod is grey soft tomentose, without setose hairs; pubescence very short, fulvous; but the leaves look rhomboid;size not known, pod pubescence is not clear; hence without the particulars it is difficult to decide between R.sericia and R.accutissima;
Does not look like matching with both, R.acutissima or R.sericea
Yes, pl. check with Rhynchosia bracteata as per GBIF and specimens as below:
May be close.
yes I agree with you
