What kind of Cassia tree is this?

I took this picture today. It looks like a Cassia, but I can't tell which kind. The leaves are narrow and the petals are wrinkled. It's not like a golden shower tree I've seen before.

Does this look like it? Golden shower/ gold medallion?

I think I am spose to use the scientific lingo

Cassia leptophylla

Gold Medallion Tree

I couldn't really see the wrinkles in the link I sent before, but this is a little closer version and it looks a bit wrinkled.

Can you tell us how you narrowed it down from all the other possibilities (especially without a lot more info than we have here)? I'd even like to know how Chiroptera knows it's a Cassia.

RE: What kind of Cassia tree is this???

well to be honest brandon, since you obviously want to pick me apart from our recent posts... I viewed a lot of Cassia images and all of them were very narrow petaled. This one had the width of the petals as her photo. And when I viewed a closer image, I found the wrinkles. However since nobody bothered to acknowledge her post for several days, I thought I would google some images and possibly help her. No fret, you can have your site. I am done. While you find pleasure in harassing newbies, I don't find pleasure in getting slammed every time I post, so it's all yours, I will not be back. Plenty of tree forums out there if I need any info. You can reply for your own pleasure and all the other pros out there, but you will get no pleasure from my reaction because I will not see your post. Obviously you will be looking for me every time to belittle me. weeee weeee me all the way home.

Hmmm, I guess that's for the best, Pinky. You seem overly emotional, and, giving wrong answers without even an explanation or caveat can throw a wrench in the gears.

Obviously, the identification of this tree is still in question. eFloras has a very limited Cassia key (I don't even think C leptophylla was included). The only way to really find out what this tree is, is to have someone very familiar with the species (assuming it's a Cassia) see something familiar, or, getting enough info to work through a Cassia key. Maybe someone can provide such a key, either online or in print.
