Notes. (1) According to J.H. Ross, Fl. Southern Africa 16: 108 (1975), "A decurrens is usually attributed to '(Wendl.) Willd.' with Mimosa decurrens J.C.Wendl., Bot. Beob. 57 (1798), being taken as a basionym. However, Willdenow cites only Mimosa decurrens Donn, Hort. Cant. 1: 114 (1796) which is a nomen nudum. As he provided no reference to Wendland, either direct or indirect, Willdenow's binomial must be treated as a new name.". (2) A taxonomic treatment of this species in China is presented in Maslin et al. (2019: 468). (3) The hybrid involving A. decurrens and A. baileyana is referred to as A. ×nabonnandii Nash in S.W.L. Jacobs & J. Pickard, Plants of New South Wales 151 (1981), and is discussed by E. Cheel in Proceedings of the Linnean Society of New South Wales 60: 443–444 (1935).
