Millettia mossambicensis is a species of legume in the Fabaceae family. It is endemic to central Mozambique, where it is fairly widespread in the low-lying woodlands and forests. The small trees are over-exploited for local construction purposes.
The leaves have two or three pairs of leaflets and one terminal leaflet which is largest. Leaflets have 9 to 11 pairs of lateral, parallel veins. The purple-blue flowers are carried on racemes which appear in spring.
