短梗畸形黄耆 duan geng ji xing huang qi

Astragalus candolleanus Royle ex Bentham in Royle, Ill. Bot. Himal. Mts. 199. 1835.

Plants mostly with developed stems. Leaflets in 6-13 pairs, mostly relatively glabrous. Inflorescence mostly black hairy. Legumes at both ends long narrowed, 10-15(-20) mm, 4-5 mm high and ca. 4 mm wide, deeply grooved dorsally, with a beak up to 10 mm.

Subalpine to alpine meadows and stony slopes; 2100-4000 m. Xi­zang [India, Kashmir, Nepal, Pakistan].

The two subspecies are not easy to distinguish in flowering state, especially because of the high polymorphism of Astragalus rhizanthus subsp. rhizanthus. The legumes are necessary for exact determination.
