It may be a Derris species.

looks like a Millettia

Thanks, …, for the genus id.

Appears close to Millettia pulchra as per keys in Flora of Mizoram at MS June,2018/06 Millettia sp. for ID and as per GBIF specimens in India– onetwo and FoC illustration.
The Only thing bothering me is ‘Corolla pale red to scarlet’ as per Flora of China.
Pl. confirm or otherwise.
