Recent and past morphological and genetic studies suggest that the genus Acacia s.l. is better treated as a number of segregate genera. The generic segregates more or less follow the boundaries of the former Acacia subgenera. It is thus an appropriate time to transfer Acacia kelloggiana A.M. Carter & Rudd from Acacia subgenus Aculeiferum to Senegalia Rafinesque. Studies of New World members of Acacia subgenus Aculeiferum have also revealed the necessity to select neotypes or lectotypes for some names of species now placed in the genus Senegalia.
