Aotus is an Australian genus of flowering plants, within the legume family Fabaceae. Aotus species, together with other species of the tribe Mirbelieae, are often called golden peas because of their distinctive small yellow flowers.

They are endemic to Australia, occurring in all states except the Northern Territory.

Aotus are evergreen species. Some are widely cultivated by gardeners for their ornamental value.
