Nifal – Judah

Whilst birding at Judah in late February I came across a small area of flowering plants. As I am far from a plant expert I took a few photos and compared them to photos in the Biodiversity of Dhahran book that has a good selection of common plants in it. I managed to find the plant in there and it is called Nifal trigonella hamosa and mentioned as a common yellow-flowered member of the Pea family that can be confused with Trigonella stellata. T. hamosa has a more upright habit, is generally larger and its flowers cluster together at the end of upright stems. The seeds form in a veined rounded pod.
