BARNEBY, Rupert C.. A new species of Pithecellobiutn (MIMOSACEAE INGEAE) from Brazilian Amazonia. Acta Amaz. [online]. 1986, vol.16, pp.141-144. ISSN 0044-5967.

Phithecellobium prancei, related to T. simabifolium Benth. and P. spruceanum Benth., is described and figured from specimens collected on white sand savannas along rio Aracá in northern Amazonas, Brazil. Its relationships within sect. Samanea ser. Coriaceae Benth., a group due for generic segregation from Pithecellobium sens. lat., are discussed.
