Name Status. Accepted Name

Type Designation. Type: not designated/n.v.; probably at B. Source. Fl. Australia 11A: 240 (2001).
Notes. 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.'. In India this species is cultivated for timber; it is naturalized in hills of south India (between 1400 - 2000 m alt.) and in northeast India (to 1500 m alt.) (Chakrabarty & Gangopadhyay (1996: 609).
