Which Fabaceae ??

It is Indigofera heterantha Wallich ex Brandis - Himalayan indigo
Looks different from images at Indigofera heterantha 

To me it seems to be Hedysarum campylocarpon.
Plate 30 of The Flowers of The Himalaya by Polulin and Stainton refers.

I guess it is not matching.

did you get a flower and dissect it?
secondly with so many flowers, were there any seed pods?

I thought it would be easy to identify so did not give much attention about fruit pods. By the way, image 4 and 5 shows slight indication of fruiting stage.
Indigofera stachyodes Lindl.    ??
