Senegalia prominens Maslin, B.C.Ho, H.Sun & L.Bai, Pl. Diversity 41: 428, fig. 38 & 40 (2019)
Name Status. Accepted Name
Notes. Mimosa sinuata Lour. is treated on WorldWideWattle as a synonym of Senegalia rugata. However, there has been much confusion regarding the application of the name Acacia sinuata in China, and the following notes by (Maslin et al. 2019: 431) are relevant: "Deciphering and interpreting past Chinese literature accounts of Acacia concinna and A. sinuata is somewhat challenging, especially because no voucher specimens were cited in most relevant works. Nevertheless, it appears most likely that elements of both Senegalia prominens and S. rugata were included in the descriptions of A. sinuata by Institute of Botany (1972), Huang (1985) and Wu (1988), and in the descriptions of A. concinna by Xing (2005), Wu (2008) and Wu and Nielsen (2010). However, the illustrations in Huang (1985),Wu (1988) and Wu (2008) are clearly of S. prominens, while the photo in Xing (2005) is most likely of S. rugata. Although the description of A. concinna by Wu and Nielsen (2010) applies to S. rugata, most Chinese provincial occurrences they cited for that species probably refer to S. prominens.".
