Med.LHW 68-2: 96; Voorhoeve, 1979: 248
Rather tall tree, to30 (45?) m high and 100 cm Ø, scattered in rain forests and semi-deciduous forests of low or medium elevation, recorded from Sierra Leone and Ivory Coast, and recently also in Liberia. In the Nimba region sometimes abundant. Base without or with low buttresses. Bark about 1.5 cm thick, longitudinally fissured, peeling off in small, more or less rectangular grey green scales. Slash pale pinkish, rapidly turning brown on exposure, near the cambium slowly exuding some sticky, cream-coloured latex. Leaves impari-pinnate with opposite leaflets. Fruit a markedly stalked, (2) 3-chambered capsule, sub-globose or pear-shaped, about 2.5 – 3 cm across, shortly tomentose, opening with three valves. Seeds usually 2 in each chamber, nearly entirely covered with a orange-red aril.
