Please identiy this small herb 2 - NS 080911Attachments (3). 9 posts by 6 authors.
Photographed at my farm at Shahpur last weekend.
Again a small herb [20 - 30 cms tall] in open grasslands with minute flowers about 4mm in size.
Could this be a species of Indigofera [possibly I.linifolia] ?

... my belief too, Indigofera linifolia.
I agree with ... id. Nice picture!

Please refer the identified pictures here:
https://groups.google.com/group/indiantreepix/browse_thread/thread/1c...
As per another thread: [This is not Indigofera linifolia efi thread]
The leaves are much more linear in this species and are glabrous, where as what i found at Kalina campus, Mumbai is a bit different.
I think the leaves are variable in shape and size.
FoC describes that the leaves are "...usually linear but sometimes elliptic to ovate-elliptic...".
Yes ... variation in leaf shape can happen and also hairiness vary according to season and locality.

You are mixing plants & nature & general photography so well. You always do things which are so unique.
Very nice pictures! I agree with your ID, Indigofera linifolia (Linear leaves; flowers in racemes; pods globose, 1-seeded).
The plants here are seemingly happy and healthy and so growing erect and also the leaves appear longer than usual. They usually seen as prostrate herbs in disturbed places. Gamble has mentioned the two forms of the habit (FPM, pg 309).
Thanks for showing us this rather not-so-common form of the common plant.
Thank you very very much ... for the validation and clarity. My earlier sightings of I. linifolia were consistently prostrate plants not rising above 4 - 5 cm. This erect version thus confused me. Must say this plant in its erect habit can easily pass as an ornamental.

This plant was seen on 4th Jan in an agricultural field in Thane district, Maharashtra.
The globose whitish pods point to Indigofera linifolia although previously I have only seen this herb with a more upright habit and with linear leaves.
Flora of China mentions that "leaf or leaflet blade usually linear but sometimes elliptic to ovate-elliptic
Is this a common variation here in India?

I am not expert but I think the prostrate nature here goes more near to Indigofera cordifolia rather than I.linifolia.
I think the id is right, this is not I. cordifolia and more likely to be I. linifolia...
The differentiating key character as per BSI flora between the I. linifolia and I. cordifolia is
Pods 1 seeded...... I. linifolia
Pods 2 or more seeded.... I. cordifolia
The plant in question seems to be I. linifolia. Apart from this the flowers are quite large in size for I. cordifolia.
thank you for confirming the id. It was new for me to see this plant with such a different habit.
Thanks for your opinions ... Very interesting variation seen in the plant.

Can it be one of the Indigoferas. I am not sure.
It may be Indigofera linifolia, but I am not very sure.

Indigofera linifolia?
Links for Indigofera linifolia: http://www.hear.org/pier/species/indigofera_linifolia.htm (details with an image),

See earlier Indiantreepix link with unconfirmed Indigofera linifolia Id at: http://groups.google.co.in/group/indiantreepix/browse_thread/thread/9f047421ae4f66d9?hl=en&pli=
..., I had thought of Indigofera linifolia, and it could be so.
... the leaves seen in most of pictures of I. linifolia that I came across seem to be very long compared what is seen in my photo OR are such variations in leaves are accepted ?
Appears to be Indigofera linifolia only as per images herein.
I feel it is Indigofera linifolia for the following: Leaf blades linear to obovate,densely adpressed pubescent, never gland dotted; pods globose, not echniate; seeds globose tuberculate
Thank you very much ... for suggesting ID of Indigofera linifolia
I too think it must be I. linifolia.

Does not look like Indigofera linifolia as per images herein.
efi page with images on Indigofera cordifolia
Appears to be I. linifolia. The single seeded pods supports the id.
The id key is on number of seeds per pod as per BSI Flora of Maharashtra. Seeds per pod in I. cordifolia being 2+ .  I. linifolia is very variable plant.
Thanks, ... But leaves look different from images at Indigofera linifolia 
It is Indigofera linifolia
To me also appears to be I. linifolia based on leaf shape and single seed.
It is clearly I. linifolia. There lot of variation in the size and shape of the leaves but it is very clear about fruit. it single seeded spherical fruit in I.linifolia. 
It is Indigofera linifolia
Looks like Indigofera linifolia var campbelli.
See also: efi thread
which I feel is Indigofera linifolia var campbelli.
..., though Indigofera linifolia var campbelli is listed as a synonym of I. linifolia currently (in theplantlist.org) it is worth adding an image to the Indigofera genus page as the leaf variation is distinct and more importantly, prevent confusion in identification if the plant is not fruiting.

Requesting ID of this weed, Spreading about 1’, Photo taken on 14Mar16 at Solapur, Maharashtra.
Looks like Indigofera linifolia.
Please wait for experts to comment.
not. the leaf shape (and possibly size, cant say since no measurements are given). does not support the dx

Agree with ... Leaves one foliate, fruit one-seed. Pods silvery white (very characteristic) and small (< 5mm). Leaves here are not linear but are a variation, obovate (ssp campbelli?)
I went through my collection and realized I had never seen Indigofera linifolia after December. My sighting were all immediately post monsoon until about end november - early december.
Comments welcome.
P.S.: Checked with Fl MH (Almeida) wrt flowering / fruiting for ssp campelli and it says 'Aug to March!
Hearing from you after a very long while.
Thanks for supporting my suggested id.
I had seen this small plant on 23rd Oct,15 at a Govt Plant Nursery in Nasik.
Hibernating ...
Thanks for showing these pictures.
Yes the first thought which came to me after the reply was about the shape of leaves which is not linear.
But I checked the detailed explanantion from ... which is logically right.
I do remember photographing similar pictures in Dec/Jan. wondering about which species it can be.
Considering the location and abundant nature I think the ID is right. Will share my pictures after checking.
Thank you all. By the way, the weed was found in a newly planted mango orchard, where top soil from outside added and was under drip irrigation.
I am still not convinced. Look at this link... the picture is by our own .... do you folks see the difference in the leaves????
The write up on that page about the leaf is :
I quote "Nearly stalkless leaves are narrow, linear to oblong-lanceolate, 20-45 x 2-4 mm, sharp-tipped, appressed-pubescent on both surfaces." end quote
I really do not see in the present pictures narrow long leaves nor is there a visual clue to the ends being POINTED... does any one of  you see it?  or other members?? ALSO- My question -
can there be such a wide variation in the overall leaf anatomy ??? if there is and it is documented, i will love to hear from you and see the paper. Until such time (when you can send in references)
this may not be Indigofera linifolia. OH before i forget...
if flowers of India ID is not correct then I am sure ... would like to be informed as well.
could the variation in leaf be accommodated... since this plant seems to have these single round berry type fruits? is there a scholarly paper somewhere ?
Thank you all, I am sending additional images taken two days after previous, which may assist you to proper ID. There were three such plants spaced in a patch of 20-25 ft.

Thanks. so leaves are now  a bit longer and in one (in first picture, new batch) and two  in picture two, new batch seem have a pointed slightly brownish "tip" .... may be the pointed ended longish leaves of the description??? lets wait for some botanist/taxonomist with credentials to tell me if this  is really I.  linifolia... I would be really very helpful to get a description paper.
thank you again for being a sport and taking this set of follow up photographs. by the way its (indigofera linifolia) been wiped out of Rajasthan by overgrazing ....
i hope this population is not endangered where it is.
ps that was an interesting use of  a note for size comparison.. I have not seen anybody do that in recent times.  Not in India at least. wonderfully creative of you.
Thanks ..., You had mentioned something about size in previous post. The note was handy.
By the way, a specimen was posted on Sep14 (180914SG) and was identified as Indigofera linifolia (L.f.) Retz. It was found about hundred Km apart the present.   Hope, its population is not threatened
that case is validated upon resurfacing by both ...and ..., so i am sure that's what it is... may be they can look at this case too. can we ask/request  them?
i again observed the 3 picx provided, the leaf although appears to be more linear than what is in a common I.linifolia specimen, i am pretty sure the plant in question is I. linifoliathe fruit is globular which confirms the identity. other globuar fruit in Indigofera is of I. glandulosa, however it has tri-foliate leaves.
following key may be of help
also find morphology of fruit of Indigofera in the pic
and Indigofera linifolia specimen observed at Mumbai by me.

Wonderful, ... Thanks for the composite picture and your pictures they show. the best way to depict the fruits. appreciate the key
