    During agronomic evaluation of introduced accessions of Stylosanthes Swartz in Colombia and Queensland, Australia, a genotype differing in morphology, chromosome number, and genetic markers was discovered. The new species Stylosanthes seabrana is closely related to S. scabra Vogel and has been collected in Bahia, Brazil. Two cultivars, 'Primar' and 'Unica,' of this species now newly recognized were released in Queensland, Australia, in 1996 for use as pasture legumes.
