Notes

A small, rarely large tree to 25 m, with well- or less- developed buttresses, or a swollen or claw-like base. Slash pale yellow, moist, showing ripple marks. In savanna country often a bushy or small tree. Leaflets very small, to 4 mm, linear. Look for glands between the upper pinnae. Pinnae opposite. The leaf looks somewhat like Piptadeniastrum, but the pinnae are opposite and the leaflets smaller than in that species. Flowers in small round heads, white. The pods have a thickened edge. Synonym: Albizia dinklagei (in Prota); Cathormion dinklagei. Note the distinct, somewhat swollen glands between the upper pinnae. See also Prota database.
