Synonyms:Mimosa cordistipula subsp. multiglandulosa var. tomentosa
Description:Variety Description - Different from var. paraguariae in plumose setae of stems, lf-stks and lft-margins, and apparently also in leaf-formula, the pinnae as long but fewer, in number agreeing rather with multiglandulosa.

Distribution and Ecology - In campo at unrecorded elevation, collected once only in Sa. de Maracayú near the Brazil-Paraguay border, the precise locality not identified.


The var. tomentosa resembles var. paraguariae in every respect other than the truly remarkable plumose setae which recall those of ser. Lepidotae, setae of a sort encountered elsewhere in sect. Batocaulon only in M. surumuensis.
