Sharing some pictures I guess is Smithia ciliata Royle (accepted name) shot at Nagarkot, Nepal on 8 September 2016 at 5500 ft.
I think seems to match with images at Smithia ciliata

Some pics are attached of unknown legume collected from NEHU campus, Shillong. Kinldy help me to identify this legume from root Nodules it appears to be belongs to tribe Dalbergie in which Aeschynomene comes. But looking to flower it is neither Aeschynomene indica nor Aeschynomene americana.
Kindly help me. Kindly enlarge the field view
Some more pics of unknown legume from NEHU, Shillong. One is known Aeschynoene americana (pic with pod) Another is unknown to us. Attachments (2)
The first one seems to be Smithia sp. ..
Kindly find the low pixel pic of unknown legume collected from Shillong-NEHU. The leaves are like Aeschynomene but pods, inflorescence and flowers are not like that. But definitely it belongs to Tribe Dalbergeae according to root nodule patterns. See attached pics. As ... guessed if it is species of Smithia? Smithia flowers are yellow but I don't know if pink or so as it is in pic. Kindly see black arrow in filed view. You just enlarge and see.

Pl. also check with images & other threads at Smithia ciliata Royle
Original picture is not clear to see the details.
Thank you very much ... The taxonomic characters match with the Smithia ciliata. The leaves are sensitive that I confirmed. Nodule pic is strong evidence of thsi plant belongs to tribe Dalbergeae.
Once again Thanks for the same. I have some more pics of legumes where I have some doubt. You also kept pic of legume nodules with your taxonomic characters and album.
