status

 

Mimosa pudica Linnaeus  , Species Plantarum 1: 518. 1753 View Cited Treatment .

"Habitat in Brasilia." RCN: 7664.

Lectotype (Brenan in Kew Bull. 10: 185. 1955): Herb. Clifford: 208, Mimosa  3, excl. inflorescences (BM-000628752)  .

Generitype of Mimosa Linnaeus  (vide Green, Prop. Brit. Bot.: 162. 1929).

Current name: Mimosa pudica L.  ( Fabaceae  : Mimosoideae  ).

Note: Mimosa sensitiva  was treated as the generitype by Britton & Wilson (Scient. Surv. Porto Rico 5: 357. 1924; see McNeill & al. in Taxon 36: 378. 1987). However, under Art. 10.5, Ex. 7 (a voted example) of the Vienna Code, this is a type choice made under the American Code and is to be replaced under Art. 10.5b by Green’s choice (Prop. Brit. Bot.: 162. 1929) of M. pudica L. Barneby  (in Mem. New York Bot. Gard. 65: 624. 1991) notes that the type is not identifiable below species level.
