A fairly large tree with narrow but high buttresses and a short, irregular bole; slash with a distinct smell of cheese, slowly exuding a honey-coloured, clear, sticky sap; throughout Liberia in high forest and older secondary forests. Bark of the buttresses often stripped off because of its reportedly strengthening effect for men. Leaf bipinnate, each leaf with 2 – 4 pinnae; each pinna with ± 4 more or less falcate leaflets. Fruit a thin, elongate pod with characteristic winged seeds. See also PROTA database.
