I don't know who the moderator is for this plant or I would treemail them. I think this is not a photo of Crotalaria spectabilis Rattlebox (Crotalaria spectabilis) posted by Ferenc. It is undoubtably a Crotalaria but not spectabilis. See: http://www.floridanature.org/p... & http://www.floridainvasives.or... and http://www.gri.msstate.edu/ipa.... I haven't found which one it may actually be.

There's no specific moderator for that section of the database, Ann. Why don't you contact the contrbutor of the photo in question, Ferenc, and share your concerns with him? I frankly don't see much difference.

I agree with Ann, it looks very different to me. I looks like Crotalaria agatiflora.

Good find Jay! Thumbs up

I have treemailed Ferenc & we'll let him make the final decision & he can move the photo.

Thanks everyone! I tip my hat to you.

No problem Ferenc. And don't be embarrassed or blush --- it happens to all of us.
