The Mirbelieae are an Australasian group of legumes that are mostly sclerophyllous shrubs. Members of the clade produce gigantic antipodal cells in the embryo sacs, or multiple embryo sacs lacking antipodals. Members include the genus Daviesia, bitter peas, in which legume pods are more or less elongate and triangular. Aotus, golden peas, have leaves with recurved to revolute margins and flowers lacking bracteoles.
