The names found have these generic epithets: as accepted in the plant list online data base. That plants were; Indigofera argentea / I. articulate, Indigofera aspalathoides Vahl. Indigofera enneaphylla Linn. Indigofera glabra Linn. Indigofera glandulosa Willd. Indigofera linifolia Retz. Indigofera pulchella Roxb. Indigofera tinctoria Linn. Indigofera trifoliata Linn. Indigofera trita Linn. Books mentioned 04 species were not latest updated Plant List Online data base which were; Indigofera caerulea Roxb. Indigofera cordifolia. Indigofera frutescens. Indigofera hirsuta. According to the Results and Discussion this research revealed that, 20 species of Indigofera genera by the evidence of books and 04 species synonyms like updated latest in online data base. However, 16 species available in the Thoothukudi District 16 species available commonly and 04 species were rarely showed in Thoothukudi District by randomly field to all soil types of areas.
