AbstractMimosa, abundant in Mexico, ranges in the United States primarily from southern Texas to southern Arizona; one species occurs along the coastal plain east to Florida, and another reaches southernmost Colorado. Fifteen taxa (13 species) are treated largely through alpha-taxonomy procedure. Nomenclature is reviewed, but no new names are proposed. This publication is one of a series preliminary to a manual of U. S. legumes.
