A new species of “jurema,” Mimosa urandiensis (Leguminosae, Mimosoideae), from the municipality of Urandi, Bahia, is described and illustrated. This species is distinguished primarily by the presence of capitate glandular trichomes on vegetative and reproductive structures, associated with the glandular-ciliolate stipules and bracts. The morphological distinctiveness of this new species and its relationships with allied species are discussed. Scanning electron micrographs of trichomes and pollen grains, and a key to this new taxon and morphologically similar species are provided.
