scientific name

Acacia macracantha Humb. & Bonpl. ex Willd.
status

 

Mimosa semispinosa Linnaeus  , Species Plantarum 1: 522. 1753 View Cited Treatment .

"Habitat in America." RCN: 7691.

Type not designated.

Original material: Herb. Clifford: 208, Mimosa  6 ( BM)  .

Current name: Acacia macracantha Humb. & Bonpl. ex Willd.  ( Fabaceae  : Mimosoideae  ).

Note: The application of this name is uncertain. Barneby (in Mem. New York. Bot. Gard. 65: 777. 1991) treated it as a species incertae sedis and did not trace a type. He noted that if the name proved to apply to a true Mimosa  , the armature and leaf-formula would fit M. distachya var. oligacantha  (DC.) Barneby. A Clifford collection (BM), only rather doubtfully associated with the name, is not a Mimosa  , but close to Acacia macracantha Humb. & Bonpl. ex Willd.  , a very large and widely distributed complex in the neotropics (Rico, pers. comm.). Mimosa semispinosa  appears to be a candidate for rejection.
