Bossiaeeae are plants with red and yellow flowers endemic to Australia. These pea-flowered shrubs, also called the "egg-and-bacon peas of Australia", make up a tribe of legumes related to the Mirbelieae. In fact, phylogenetic analysis suggests that the tribe Bossiaeeae is monophyletic with the Mirbelieae. It contains the following genera:
- Aenictophyton A. T. Lee
- Bossiaea Vent.
- Goodia Salisb.
- Muelleranthus Hutch.
- Platylobium Sm.[Note 1]
- Ptychosema Benth. ex Lindl.
- Possibly synonymous with Bossiaea
