The synonym of the species is Cassia nodosa or Cassia javanica subsp.
nodosa, a name given to it for the presence of this swelling on the
anthers...

I think you mean the nodular swelling on the stamens rather than the anthers.

Filaments rather than anthers.

Dear Dr Singh: what's the function of such specialized
filaments..... seems to me to be able to invite some special
pollinator?
what could it be?
