Comment/Acknowledgements: Some of the extremely hispid forms [e.g. Chumba, Clarke 23756A (K); Hawalbagh, May 1845, Thomson (K)] have been labelled Lespedeza sesricea f. hispida by Schindler. There is considerable variation in the indumentum, ranging from plants with very few hairs on stem and leaf [e.g. Srinagar water works, 5500 ft., 25.8.1917, R.R.Stewart 3366 (K)] to extremely hispid forms [Chamba, Raipur, 4000 ft.,14.10.1874, C.B.Clarke 23756A (K); Him.bor. occ.,3-6000 ft.,12.5.48, T. Thomson (K); Hawalbagh, May 1845, T. Thomson (K)]. However, the variation is quite gradual, and does not seem to have any correlation with the geographical distribution either; hence no importance has been given to this character.

This taxon, under the name of Lespedeza cuneata, is extensively used in agriculture in the United States of America.
