Synonyms:Mimosa albolanata Taub.
Description:Variety Description - Different from var. brasiliana only in slightly more numerous leaflets finely villosulous on both faces as well as ciliolate but the hairs of upper face sometimes reduced to papilli or even suppressed.

Distribution and Ecology - In cerrado about sandstone outcrops, near or above 800 m, known only from Sa. Dourada in s.-centr. Goiás, Brazil.—Fl. I—II.


This is weakly distinguished morphologically from var. brasiliana, but in its disjunct habitat seems to be uniformly so. The earliest collections, made by Burchell in 1828, were referred by Bentham partly (no. 6848, K) to M. claussenii and partly (nos. 6681, 6700-15, K) to M. gardneri, and have contributed to confused notions of the real identity of all these species.
