Alysicarpus species- Halabhavi
Alysicarpus ¿ species ?
The colour combination in flower seems to be strikingly different. Naive questions: Does it tell ID? OR are there many species sharing this colour combination ? Answers to this will help me very much.

ID of alysicarpus shall need photographs of pods ...

Alysicarpus species in eFloraofindia (with details/ keys from published papers/ regional floras/ FRLHT/ FOI/ Biotik/ efloras/ books etc., where ever available on net) 

There are other species of the genera Alysicarpus have similar kind of dual coloured flowers. In the images attached, calyx is much longer, since it is difficult to identify species because identification is mainly based on pods.
But, if the pods are rugose and stem is villous then it should be Alysicarpus glumaceus (Vahl) DC. or otherwise Alysicarpus longifolius (Spreng.) Wight & Arn. as flower pedicel are much longer..
Thank you very much ... for your thoughts and the possible IDs. Indeed I must get to the pods in future to avoid ambiguities.
