As a result of cladistic studies in the tribe Indigofereae in Africa and Madagascar (Schrire 1991) evidence was accumulated to justify resurrecting the genera Microcharis Benth. and  Indigastrum Jaub. & Spach, which were previously considered part of Indigofera L. All described species in each genus are listed alphabetically. Forty-seven new combinations, six changes ain rank and four resurrected names are published.
