A very tiny wild plant seen on 31/1/14.
Could be Melilotus or Trigonella, our common Fenugreek?
Kindly id.
None of the two, leaflet margins are entire.
This has been identified by ... of Royal Botanic Gardens Kew as Lotus schimperi.

This should also be Lotus glinoides as per another thread: Wild Plant For ID : Oman : 090314 : AK-13 and as per references at Lotus glinoides

Tiny wild plant seen on 31/1/14 in Muscat.
No open flowers.
Id please.

According to ... of Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew this seems to be a Lotus Species, could be Lotus halophilus.
I had gone last week to check for the flowers (it is supposed to have tiny yellow flowers) but due to construction activity, could not locate the tiny plant.

I"m not sure, but it looks a bit like Seetzenia lanata, Zygophyllaceae

Thanks for a possible id.
I had thought of Seetzenia lanata too initially, but the arrangements of leaves looks different to me.
Kindly check this link.

This tiny plant has been identified by ... of Oman Botanic Garden as Lotus glinoides.
Please amend in Eflora.
