Notes

Tall tree resembling Khaya anthotheca but the bark is more scaly, the slash more bitter and scented; leaves have usually 6 pairs of opposite leaflets; the fruits and winged seeds look very similar. Although a tree of the evergreen forest it seems to be rare in Liberia as compared to Ivory Coast. See also PROTA database.
