Maybe Acacia angustissima http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/73443/
It must have rained as the blooms, I'd think, would be more of a puff-ball.

I think so but I might be wrong 'cause I haven't seen it before.

Calliandra portoricensis appears correct. Often called Snow Flake Acacia

Yes, calliandra portoricensis seems to be a very good match.
