Desmanthus leptolobus

Desmanthus leptolobus, commonly known as Prairie mimosa, Prairie bundleflower or Slenderlobed bundleflower, is an inconspicuous plant of the genus Desmanthus, which primarily grows close to the ground. It can be found growing wild in many areas of the south central United States. While easily overlooked, it is often locally abundant over large expanses of rolling prairie.[1]

Root bark of D. leptolobus has been found to contain a psychedelic compound called N,N-DMT, and other related tryptamines. While its only reported quantitative analysis was 0.14% (Appleseed), all instances of co-occurrence with Desmanthus illinoensis showed it to be noticeably stronger than D. illinoensis, based on co-TLC of measured amounts of root bark.[vague][2]
