A truly emergent tree, to 50 m high and 180 cm Ø, found mostly in the semi-deciduous forest zone but penetrating into the rainforest zone. Old trees have formidable buttresses, up to 6 m high and spreading in high, thick root ridges far from the tree. The bark is fairly smooth, grayish or yellowish or reddish brown, with scattered lenticels, peeling off in irregular thin and large bark plates, leaving shallow, bright, light brown mussel shell markings. Slash pinkish-reddish, with faint ripple marks. Leaves ipari-pinnate, clustered, with sub-opposite leaflets; tip of leaflet folded. Distinct leaf scars on twigs. See also PROTA database.
