Turner, H. (1995) Blumea Supplement 9 : 215.
Sapwood surface corrugated.
Leaflets about 8-12 in the compound leaf, each leaflet blade about 8.5-20 x 3.5-6.5 cm. Domatia are small inconspicuous foveoles with a very narrow orifice. Leaflet stalks conspicuously swollen at their junction with the compound leaf rhachis. Lateral veins curved throughout their length. Leafy twigs longitudinally grooved or striated.
Male and female flowers produced in the same inflorescence. Male flowers: Flowers about 3-5 mm diam. Calyx lobes about 0.8 mm long. Petals about 0.5 mm long, apex hairy. Stamens eight, filaments about 2-3 mm long, lower half hairy. Anthers about 0.5-0.8 mm long, glabrous, connective sometimes mealy. Female flowers: Flowers about 2 mm diam. Calyx lobes about 0.8 mm long. Petals about 0.5 mm long, apex hairy. Staminodes short, filaments scarcely developed. Disk large and inflated. Ovary + style + stigma about 2 mm long.
First pair of leaves compound with 2-4 leaflets. Terminal leaflet (if present) much smaller than the lateral leaflets. At the tenth leaf stage: domatia (foveoles) present on at least some leaflets, leaflets +/- lanceolate but usually somewhat unequal-sided at the base, apex acuminate and mucronate, base +/- cuneate; midrib raised on the upper surface; lateral veins curved throughout their length; compound leaf petiole +/- flat on the upper surface but the compound leaf rhachis ridged on the upper surface. Stem longitudinally grooved or striated. Seed germination time 17 to 62 days.
