Stipules ovate-lanceolate or lanceolate, semi-sagittate, 1-2 x as broad as stem. Peduncles 3-13-flowered, much longer than leaves. Calyx 7-9 mm; teeth unequal, the upper broadly triangular, the lowest tooth longer, triangular-lanceolate, a little shorter than tube. Corolla deep pink, 18-25 mm. Legume linear, glabrous, upper suture narrowly 3-keeled, 50-70 x 7-10 mm. Seeds 6-10, faintly reticulate-rugulose, hilum 1/5 of circumference. Fl. 6-7.

Caucasia. N. Iraq, N. Iran. Subsp. miniatus differs from the Crimean subsp. rotundifolius in its stouter, more broadly winged stems, usually longer leaflets, more richly flowered racemes, and larger calyx with relatively longer teeth, but specimens of the former subspecies often approach the less variable Crimean population in one character or another.
