The Mimosoideae comprise a subfamily of the flowering plant family Fabaceae (Leguminosae)[2] characterized by flowers with small petals and numerous prominent stamens. This subfamily is subdivided into four tribes: Acacieae, Ingeae, Mimoseae, and Mimozygantheae.[1]

Some classification systems, for example the Cronquist system, treat the Fabaceae in a narrow sense, raising the Mimisoideae to the rank of family as Mimosaceae. The Angiosperm Phylogeny Group treats Fabaceae in the broad sense.

Acacieae

Mimoseae

The lead tree, Leucaena leucocephala, is used for fiber and livestock fodder.
