Astragalus … ?? 


Pl. Check comparative images at efi site. 


Pl. check with comparative images at Astragalus


I think close to images at Astragalus rhizanthus Benth.


May be some other species as per keys at Flora of China


Astragalus rhizanthus subsp. candolleanus (Benth.) Podlech ?? as in earlier post SK657 19 JUL-2017:ID ??


This is Caragana, but I am not sure of the species.



Also appears closer to Caragana spinifera Kom. as given in Flora of Bhutan as per GBIF Specimen
Flora of Bhutan gives the following keys:
1. Wing petals with a linear appendage at base almost as long as the claw Species 1 (C. jubata (Pallas) Poiret; C. chambica Prain) & 2 (C. sukiensis Schneider; C. nepalensis Kitamura)
+ Wing petals with rounded auricles at base ………………. .. 3. C. spinifera.


Did not find listing/ distribution in Nepal 


Caragana gerardiana Benth. ??


Yes, appears close as per GBIFSpecimen.
Is it the only species mentioned in the book on Flora of Mustang?


Thank you … I have sent the excerpts from the book in other mail.
Hope both are correct!

Seems like Caragana sukiensis

I also think Astragalus or similar genera. Pl. Check comparative images in efi site.
