Very nice flowers Prashant !
Can we have key identification/differentiating characters to differentiate both  genus Desmodium and Alysicarpus?

Satish Ji,
 
As per Dr Jabbar, there will be a sterile terminal segment on the fruits in Alysicarpus and is lacking in Desmodium. I think this demarcation will make our identification more easier than considering the the floral characters.

Thanks a lot
Amateurs like us will at least try to observe the fruits henceforth along with other characters.
