Sir,

Received an ID suggestion, Sesbania roxburghii Merr., synonym of S. javanica Miq., as per The Plant List.

So, i need to take some more photographs of its leaves and pods and also record sizes. I would try to do that. Meanwhile, attaching a photo of its leaves, though very bad quality and out of focus.

However, the pictures at http://mypaper.pchome.com.tw/slinwang/post/1321530470 shows leaflets of S. roxburghii Merr. have acute (acuminate?) tips.

Thank you & Regards,

surajit

Sir,

I attach screenshots of pages of the following e-books, downloaded from the net -
1) "Bengal Plants" by David Prain
2)  "An English Index to The Plants of India" by Piddington
3) "HORTUS SUBURBANUS CALCUTTENSIS" (A Catalogue of The Plants which have been cultivated in the Hon. East India Company's Botanical Garden, Calcutta, and in the Serampore Botanical Garden....) by Voigt.

Sir,

I am extremely ashamed for inconveniences i made to all. I revisited the plant in this post today and attach fresh photographs.
It is quite possible that this plant is not DHONCHE or DHUNCHI plant i claimed before. And it may not be cultivated at all.
Please ignore all my earlier uploads in this thread.
This plant is very similar to KATH-SHOLA, in my another post (https://groups.google.com/d/topic/indiantreepix/2GWi0YCKc3U/discussion), except that this plant is slimmer and without branches.


Thank you & Regards,

surajit

Sir,

This is the most confusing of my recent posts of three Sesbania plant. It is quite possible that this plant population consists of two different species growing side by side. But, one point is to be noted - all members of this population are slender unbranched herb having very similar features.

Is it Sesbania sesban?
Is it Sesbania cannabina?
Is it Sesbania javanica?

I attach five pages of an ebook, describing Sesbania sesban, downloaded from - http://archive.org/details/TheTreesOfCalcutta
