A tree, very much resembling Tetraberlinia, but growing under moister conditions like swampy valleys and along creeks, sometimes gregarious. It grows to 28 m and 60 cm Ø, and has short and thick root swellings. Bark smooth and grey, thin-flaky. Slash granular outside, fibrous inside, pinkish brown, turning bright brown on exposure. Leaves slightly resembling those of Tetraberlinia, with 3 – 4 juga; leaflets asymmetric; one stronger ascending basal nerve and a gland above the twisted petiolule; blade ± glaucous below; with rusty or yellowish hairs on the midrib. New leaves appear in drooping, pink-red flushes in March, colouring the forest red. Pod light brown tomentellous. See also PROTA database.
