Shrub 6 for identification
:  This shrub was clicked at Chennai, South India by the road side. There were
only 2 plants in the area, just at this one spot. One plant had dried up flowers and fruits while the other had fresh flowers. The butterflies were more attracted to the plant with dried flowers. The butterflies seen were
the blue tiger, plain tiger, stripped tiger, common crow. Yes sir this plant attracts butterflies.

Crotalaria sp. of Leguminosae family. In Malayalam (in Tamil as well, I guess) it is called Kilukkachedy. The dry fruit while shaking makes nice sound (we use to play around when I was a child). The flowers are not visible hence I may not be able to confirm the id.

Agumbe Ghat (part of Someshwara Wildlife Sanctuary) ... Dakshina Kannada, Karnataka
Date: 28 DEC 2014 ... Altitude: about 600 m asl at crest, about 250 m asl at foothill 
Could this plant be Crotalaria spectabilis? Not sure of any close species.
Please validate. 
Crotalaria ¿ spectabilis / else ? ... (family: Fabaceae) 
efi page on Crotalaria spectabilis  
This is tricky. I think this is not Crotalaria spectabilis Roth, because of absence of any visible stipules or bracts which are persistent in the species.
It can be Crotalaria retusa L., even though majority leaves are not retuse, where stipules are minute and bracts are deciduous. But, I am not sure.
This is Crotalaria retusa
This one does not look like C. spectablis.
C retusa 
If anyone has confirmed pictures of Crotalaria spectabilis please could you post them?
There is so often confusion between C. retusa and C. spectabilis.  I, for one, would benefit from being able to compare the two.
I will post my pictures of Crotalaria spectabilis and retusa place-wise, date-wise ...
after I finish my family uploads.
Looking forward to others' posts too.

Flower for id pl. Is it Crotalaria ?
Location - Vasai ( Maharashtra)
Date - Dec. 2016

It is Crotalaria retusa 


sir can I get botanical name ? - खिलखिला in Marathi

Could be variant of खुळखुळा ... a name for some species of Crotalaria like C. retusa, C. verrucosa.
In case I come across खिलखिला, will return to this post.
खिलखिला is just a variant of खुळखुळा (rattle toy). It must be arising out of accent / dialect in some place(s). 
As children, we use to with play with the dry pods and call them Chanbichiya.

Kindly identify this herb possibly of Crotalaria, which is attracting a lot of butterflies. Photographed in October 2018 at a farm in Mafanapalle district, Andhra Pradesh.

It is difficult to ID the plant without the flowers. Nevertheless, it looks like a species of Crotalaria, possibly the common weed C.spectabilis.

Please check 

Looking at the images of butterflies it looks like C. spectabilis as suggested by ...

Images of Crotalaria spectabilis Roth look different as per images herein.
It does not attract butterflies as does Crotalaria retusa L.

The Greater Rattle Pod:
 
The Greater Rattle Pod [Crotolaria leschenaultii] is favoured by Milkweed butterflies like the Striped Tiger as a source of alkaloids essential for their reproduction and their distasteful nature. Sending a few photographs.
Superb set of pix! 
Beautiful pictures ... esp the carpenter Bee liked the color of the wings.

Place: in premises of St Stephen's Church, Ooty (~ 7428 ft asl), Tamilnadu
Time: November 17, 2011 at 2.18pm
Habit: medium-sized bushy shrub
Habitat: garden planted
Plant: about 6-7 ft high, many branched from base, perhaps pruned, may grow to become a large shrub
Flower: quite handsome, about (or over) an inch across ... largest of Crotalaria flower seen yet.
Seedpod: about 2 - 2.5 inches long X 0.75 - 1 inch wide; this too largest of Crotalaria pod seen yet ... may actually serve as a rattletoy.

Were the leaf simple? it has stipules at the base
I dont think this is Crotalaria. May be I am wrong
OH !! just went by the tell-tale looks of flower and seedpod.
I feel it as a species of Crotalaria only. Crotalaria spectabilis is a possibility as this plant shows variations in high altitudes.
But the pod looks different!
it does look like a Crotalaria spectabilis oversized in all aspects.-- also wondering if it could be some introduced species of Crotalaria.
Yes, it seems to be Crotalaria spectabilis Roth (Indian Rattle Box). Please see the website: http://www.floridainvasives.org/Central/rattlebox.pdf
It could be that C. spectabilis cultivated as ornamental has variations compared to what is found in wild.

Rattlepod for Id 280911 NS1: Attached fabaceae member is for Id. Plz identify.
Plant Habit- Small tree of abt 9-10 feet.
Habitat- Wild
Location- Mahabaleshwar
Date- 26 th Jan 11.
... my strong guess: Crotalaria spectabilis ... commonly known as: cats bell, greater rattle pod, showy crotalaria, showy rattlepod • *Hindi*: ghungri, जंगली सन jangli san, jhunjhunia • *Kannada*: kaadu senabu • *Marathi*: डिंगळा dingala, खुळखुळा khulkhula
I think ... is correct in guessing this plant as *Crotalaria spectabilis *of Leguminosae family.
I have a nagging doubt that the leaf shape of Crotalaria spectabilis is obovate and of this species is somehow cuneate.
Also the leaves of this species were shiny, like of rubber plant (Ficus elastica).
But may be this is due to it's habitat.
Plz tell me is it so ?
... stressed my guess based on the pod that could be seen in one of your photos.
For kind of width to length ratio of these leaves, slight variance in the shape may show the shape as EITHER cuneate OR obovate ... simply my opinion, may not be a correct thought.
Here is my sighting of of pod and leaf of C. spectabilis at Mahabaleshwar, 13 JAN 2008 for comparison ... pod and leaf in your photos look quite the same.
The other question is: any other Crotalaria close to this species ... ... seems unlikely.

Good Close up of Fruits .... Fruits are same but i also have doubt in this being C spectabilis
Yes the pods and the leaves looks same ....
Thanks for clearing my doubt.
