Mauritius. Help with id please.
Looks like Paraserianthes lophantha but with a slightly different flowerhead and a winged edge to the seedpod. Maybe a type of Albizia.
hortiphoto I appreciate your help.Thank you.
I still have 12..(now 11, ) plants to id from Mauritius.
It is hard ..I don't seem to be getting very far.
Paraserianthes lophantha was suggested on another forum.
However my pods were definitely fringed /winged so I ruled it out.

Here is one with the right looking pods, but wrong flowers: Mimosa bahamensis (not to mention wrong neck of the woods).

Are there 10 or fewer stamens? That should lead to Mimosa rather than Albizia or Acacia. The Wikipedia page has a lot of Mimosa species you can look up.

More pics.... blowed if I can count the number of stamens.
This could take ages.
Hi Ss, I think this was the same plant:
trópusi akáciaszerü (=Gagnebina pterocarpa)
Many many thanks Lila.
Thank you for coming to the rescue.
That looks a perfect fit.
