Standard widely and deeply incised; limbs of wings rounded at apex. Stigma glabrous or with minute hairlets. Legumes (unknown in Chinese species) linear, curved, keeled ventrally, grooved dorsally, 1-locular or 2-locular; valves thin.

Seven species: Afghanistan, China, India, Pakistan, Tajikistan; one species (endemic) in China.
