Unid from Ladakh - TQ-Ladakh-04: Very tiny violet-blue wild flowers, shaped like pea-flowers.
Enroute to Nubra Valley, Ladakh. Altitude above 3000 m.
In the jumble I can't figure out the leaves of the plant.
Please identify
Looks like Oxytropis, I will try to go further.
Oxytropis pusilla is found in Ladakh.

The description seems to agree with our flowers - sepals are linear covered with long black hairs. However, our flowers appear to be somewhat smaller than what Flora of China indicates. Any comments?
Perhaps leaves would have helped further. O. tatarica could also be considered.

I am attaching a crop of the picture showing what I think are the leaves.
Yes ..., if the long linear to linear-lanceolate, almost glabrous, distant leaflets belong to this plant only, then your identification Oxytropis pusilla seems most logical, and O. tatarica is ruled out.
