scientific name

Mimosa pigra L.
status

 

Mimosa pigra Linnaeus  , Centuria I Plantarum: 13. 1755, nom. cons.

"Habitat - - –” RCN: 7686.

Conserved type (Verdcourt in Taxon 38: 522. 1989): Mozambique. Gaza District, between Chibuto and Canicado by R. Limpopo, Barbosa  & Lemos 7999 (K; iso- COI, LISC, LMJ).

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

Note: Brenan (in Hubbard & Milne-Redhead, Fl. Trop. E. Africa, Leguminosae 1: 43. 1953) chose a Commelin plate as lectotype, Barneby (in Tan, Davis & Hedge Festschr.: 139. 1989) later restricting this to the leaves, which he identified as of M. vellosiella Herter. To  avoid the consequent changes, Verdcourt (in Taxon 38: 522. 1989) successfully proposed the name for conservation with a conserved type. Cowan (in Nuytsia 11: 17. 1996), however, criticised both Verdcourt’s “weedy” choice of type and the conservation of the name.
