Notes

See also Afzelia parviflora. The two species are difficult to separate by leaf, they are very similar; the difference is in the flower: A. bella has pink flowers and A. parviflora has red flowers. A. bella usually has smaller fruits with less seeds. It is a tall forest tree – but A. parviflora can be a big tree as well. See also PROTA database.
