Both identifications are correct Shilpa ji and Stephens ji

Oxalis regnelii 'atropurpurea' and O. triangularis 'atropurpurea' are synonyms, latter preferred name.

That is the difference between young and old eyes, you could reach the corners also.
It is not for nothing that Garg ji insists on One post one species
