Taxonomic Swap 129877 (Guardado el 01/09/2023)

The genus Prosopis has been broken up into several genera based on robust molecular and morphological evidence. The genera Prosopis, Anonychium, Xerocladia, Neltuma, Indopiptadenia, and Strombocarpa are all distinguishable by fruit and spine characters. Prosopis is now a purely African / Middle Eastern genus and new world species have been moved to Neltuma and Strombocarpa. See the full paper here:

It looks like 3 varieties of N. glandulosa (eastern, western, and prostrate).

Per that paper, Neltuma are "Plants armed with axillary, uninodal, solitary or paired spines or spinescent" (p 161) and refer to Figure 2 (p 151) and Figure 3 (p 152).
