See page 472 of the above reference.
By the way,
Desmodium is derived from the Greek desmos (band or chain) and refers
to the jointed seed pods
triquetrum means three cornered.

Pankaj ji 
Although it ultimately leads to the same triangular shape, strictly speaking:
Trigonous: three-cornered or thee-angled
Triquetrous: three-sided
