Synonyms: Mimosa invisa Mart. ex Colla var. invisa
Common names:
Status: Introduced
Notes: In Flora Zambesiaca 3(1), one of the early volumes published in 1970, there are two records of M. invisa, namely:
    M. invisa var. invisa (with plentiful prickles): Z: Inhangulue, c. 16 km N of Quelimane, fl. & fr. 24.viii,1962, Wild 5880 (K, SRGH).
    M. invisa var. inermis Adelb. (unarmed): Z: Quelimane, Madal Plantations, fl. 25.viii,1962, Wild & Pedro 5892 (K, SRGH).
It is clear that M. invisa var. inermis is now M. diplotricha var. inermis. However, the current name of M. invisa var. invisa is not clear. For the purposes of this database, I (MAH) have taken it to be M. diplotricha var. diplotricha.
