Authors:Rupert C. Barneby
Authority: Barneby, Rupert C. & Grimes, James W. 1996. Silk tree, guanacaste, monkey's earring: a generic system for the synandrous Mimosaceae of the Americas. Part I. Abarema, Albizia, and allies. Mem. New York Bot. Gard. 74: 1-292.
Discussion:2. E. timbouva (Mesquita, 1990: 184, figs. 38-41). Mesquita’s record of M. timbouva from Santa Marta, Colombia (H. H. Smith 5285, cited but not mapped) and his mapped record from near Pucallpa, Peru, are probably mistaken.
