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:6. E. maximum Ducke (Mesquita, 1990: 150, figs. 28-30). The leaves of E. maximum closely resemble those of E. barinense, but the homomorphic flowers and dry-walled, externally velutinous pod are distinctive.
