The Dalbergioids are an early-branching monophyletic clade of the flowering plant subfamily Faboideae or Papilionaceae. It is pantropical, particularly being found in the neotropics and sub-Saharan Africa. This clade is consistently resolved as monophyletic in molecular phylogenetic analyses. It is estimated to have arisen 55.3 ± 0.5 million years ago (in the Eocene). A node-based definition for the Dalbergioids is: "The least inclusive crown clade that contains Amorpha fruticosa and Dalbergia sissoo ." Indehiscent pods may be a morphological synapomorphy for the clade.
