Key to Kummerowia

A genus of 2 species, annual herbs, native to temperate e. Asia. Kummerowia differs from Lespedeza in its annual habit (vs. perennial), conspicuous stipules (vs. not conspicuous), inflorescence branching pattern (see Akiyama & Ohba 1985), and leaflets with striate, parallel, lateral veins (vs. with reticulate lateral veins). It is now generally regarded as distinct from Lespedeza at the generic level, though they are closely related.
