Flavonoids of four Malaysian Mimosa species were analysed. Quercetin 7-­methyl ether was found in all four Mimosa species, kaempferol, apigenin and acacetin were detected in M. pigra and M. invisa Orientin was the only flavone C-glycosides detected in M. pudica. Both M. pigra and M. invisa synthesized quercetin 3-rhamnoside, quercetin 3-rutinoside, quercetin 3, 7-­dirhamnoside, kaempferol 3-rhamnoside, kaempferol 3,7-dirhamnoside and luteolin 7-arabinoside. Flavonoid patterns of M. pudica differs from M. longihirsuta as the former species synthesized kaempferol 7-rutinoside and kaempferol 3-glucoside-7-rhamnoside, and the latter species produced quer­cetin 3-glucoside-7-rhamnoside.
