Discussion:

Low understory tree, principally of Guayana. A more easterly station is known for this species (Suriname: Upper Tapanahony R., Versteeg 866), but in the valleys of the Lucie and Zuid Riviers, H. mimosoides was found to be very abundant in individuals, especially in riverine and swampy habitats.
