Lotononis is a genus of legumes in the family Fabaceae and the tribe Crotalarieae. Almost all of the species in the genus occur in southern Africa.


Several species were recently transferred from Lotononis to four new or restored genera (Euchlora, Ezoloba, Leobordea, and Listia).[3] The species retained in Lotononis are:[3][4][5]
