Some earlier relevant feedback:
“Desmodium species, most probably D. multiflorum. http://www.efloras.org/object_page.aspx?object_id=116705&flora_id=2
“Thank you Vijay for the lead.
Instead of D. multiflorum, would it be D. laxiflorum? (http://www.efloras.org/florataxon.aspx?flora_id=2&taxon_id=200012103)
I am sorry I didnt check whether the stamens were di/monadelphous!
I went mad by running the key several times and I finally gave it up for another day then I thought I will try with you people.
Thanks and Regards,
