What is this, …?
Does not appear like fruits of Mucuna pruriens var. pruriens
Not sure about this sir
Any other images, …?
No, I don’t.
Is this Mucuna sp. ??
I do not think so. Wool like things appear to be coming out of long pods.
It may be insect gall developed from the pod.
it is not Mucuna; some fungal growth at nodes; pls observe closely
…, host plant should ve some Indigofera sp. This hairy growth appears to be some fungal growth.
I have also seen it in my area.
Yes its some plant pathogenic fungus. I have no idea about genus/species so far but i have observed same on Indigofera sp. plant few years back which i earlier thought to be some insect attack however i couldn’t find any trace of insect on closer examination.
Perhaps some disease caused by Phytoplasma.
