Lateral leaflets much smaller than terminal, if flower about 12 mm long or so, then it should be Desmodium gyrans

Thank you sir, I think you have pointed me in the right direction.. (I
think.. please review)
The flower much smaller than this... it is 4mm wide and 4mm long.. I
think the description of D. podocarpum on FloraSimlensis would be
fitting this...

Thanks lok ji
Yes I think it is D. podocarpum. Now I think you can appreciate how vital information about size helps. The flowers are clearly pedicelled, so would be the fruits.

Yes Gurcharan ji.. definitely understand your viewpoint... but as a
novice.. it takes time to build up these habits of observation...
Going on another foray soon and I hope I'll remember all these points
and come back with another treasure trove for the forum....
Thank you
regards
