The genus Schrankia in the Mimosoideae is often called "sensitive brier"
and had leaves that behave as you have described. The genus is primarily
Mexican and in the southeastern United States and contains some 10
species. Some authors have subsumed Shrankia into Mimosa.

Here in Georgia (USA) Shrankia microphylla is a common near weed.
