Reynolds, S.T. & Henderson, R.J.F. (2004) Austrobaileya 6: 857.
A small tree seldom exceeding 30 cm dbh. Sapwood surface corrugated.
Leaf blade glabrous, about 5-5.5 x 1.5-3 cm. Stipules resinous, broad at the base but abruptly narrowed into a linear, subulate point at the apex. Domatia are foveoles with a comparatively small opening. Leaf blade rather shiny on the upper surface, rather brittle, cracking when folded. Lateral veins more or less flush with the upper surface.
Calyx lobes very short. A distinct ring of downward pointing hairs present on the inner surface of the corolla tube at the same level as the attachment of the staminal filaments, glabrous elsewhere. Corolla about 5-9 mm long, the lobes slightly longer than the tube. Corolla lobes glabrous except for the minutely papillose margins. Anthers papillose. Stigma peltate, +/- mitriform, 2-lipped at the apex.
Fruits about 5 mm long excluding the stalk.
A very attractive tree, easily cultivated under a variety of conditions, produces dark green glossy leaves and masses of white perfumed flowers.
