Perhaps a  Crotalaria sp., most probably Crotalaria orixensis Willd. Dr. Almeida's flora mentions that C. orixensis is the only diffuse herbs amongst Crotalaria sp. which have trifoliate leaves.

Its not Crotalaria...!!! 
Crotalaria has a characteristic "inflated pod"
This could be some species of Vigna... I think
