Hello friends

This yellow flower was captured near Devgad, coastal Kokan, MH in Aug 2021.
It was found flowering on a lateritic rock

Guessing it to be Chamecrista mimosoides.
Requesting to please validate.

Thanks and regards

Thanks Paradesi ji for the possible ID.

A relook at the pics suggest:

- no stalked gland at the base of the leaves
- number of pairs of leaflets (<20)
- petals as long as or longer than sepals
- stamens 5-6

Is there any other characteristics that could point us to the right ID?

Thanks and regards
Alka Khare

With these characters, it may be Chamaecrista leschenaultiana (DC.) Degener as per keys at Chamaecrista.
Stamens may be 7.
