Distribution and Ecology - On brushy hillsides and river banks, and weedy along highways, ascending to 600(-?) m, locally plentiful in subandean valleys of n.-w. Argentina, from Jujuy to Tucumán, and adj. Tarija, Bolivia; reported by Burkart (1948 sub M. polycarpa) from Sta. Cruz, Bolivia, this record to be confirmed. — Fl. XI-V(-?). Map 46.


Several leaves of Venturi 8062 (UC) consist of two pairs of pinnae, such as were mentioned for M. stenoptera by Burkart (1948: 153, footnote 2). This abnormality is so rare that I have not thought it worthwhile to provide a lead in the foregoing keys.
