  • Lathyrus inconspicuus auct. non Linn.: Baker

    Erect annual, 10-35 cm tall, stem glabrous or pubescent. Leaf pinnately compound, leaflets 2, 1.5-6.0 cm long, 1-7 mm broad, linear-lanceolate, acute, glabrous; stipules 5-9 mm long, lanceolate, semisagittate. Flower solitary axillary, pedicel short. Calyx 4-5 mm, teeth equal, 1- ½ times as long as the tube. Corolla lilac rarely white. Vexillum 7-9 mm long. Fruit 3.0-5.0 cm long, 4-5 mm broad, linear, glabrous or pubescent, 7-11-seeded.

    Type: ‘inter sata triticea Circe Matritum’ (not seen).

    Distribution: Pakistan; Kashmir; India; Afghanistan; Persia; Palestine; Asia Minor; Iraq; Turkey; Russia; S. Europe.

    Generally Lathyrus inconspicuous L. is the accepted name of this taxon, but the type of Lathyrus inconspicuous L. (Herb.Linn.905/7 (LINN) has exceptionally short and broad fruits (30 mm long, 6-7 mm broad), which can hardly be equated with this taxon. I have therefore adopted the next available name.
