Family:Mimosaceae
Description:Subspecies Description - Habit, stature and lf-formula essentially those of subsp. pachycarpa, but floral bracts no longer than fl-buds prior to anthesis and the capitula then moriform (not conelike).

Distribution and Ecology - The collective range of the varieties assembled under subsp. brevibractea extends from the S. Bartolomeu basin in Distrito Federal north through Sa. Geral do Paranã in Goiás and east interruptedly to Sas. de Anta and do Cabral in Minas Gerais. Within this range they are mutually vicariant, but in the Distrito, and in Minas Gerais, they are sympatric with members of subspp. foliolosa and pachycarpa.
