Mabberley, D.J. (1998), Notes on Australian Meliaceae. Telopea 8(1): 48
Scentless Rosewood, Bastard Rosewood.
Leaves compound, alternate. New growth reddish. Stipules absent. Petiole 2-6 cm long. Leaflets 5-9 (occasionally 3 or 11), opposite, pinnately compound, imparipinnate (leaves ending with a terminal leaflet). Stalk of the terminal leaflet generally longer than those of the lateral leaflets; lateral petiolules 1-3 mm long, terminal petiolule 1-15 mm long. Leaflet blade oblanceolate, narrowly obovate, oblong or elliptic, 2-13.5 cm long, 1.5-4.5 cm wide, base cuneate or attenuate, sometimes asymmetric, margins entire ± undulate/sinuate, apex acuminate, sometimes acute. Lateral veins 5-11 pairs. Domatia present as small hairy tufts. Surfaces hairless or only very sparsely hairy. Oil dots obscure and very small.
Inflorescences axillary, paniculate, much shorter than the leaves. Pedicels 3-6 mm long. Flowers apparently unisexual and plants dioecious, however well developed rudimentary parts in flowers give the appearance of bisexual flowers, actinomorphic, usually 4 merous (rarely 5), white to pale pink, sweetly scented. Sepals free or only shortly fused at base ± deltoid, c. 0.5 mm long. Petals free, elliptic, 4-6 mm long. Stamens usually 8 (-10), fused into a cup-like tube, 3-5 mm long, lobed at apex, anthers partly exserted from tube. Disk obscure; ovary superior, pubescent, 2 or 3-locular, style short, 2-2.5 mm long with discoid stigma, terminal and peltate.
