FWTA 1: 647
Shrub or small tree to 9 m and 10 cm Ø, fairly common in the semi-deciduous forests and gallery forests; branches flexible and angular; fruits globular, about 1.5 cm Ø, yellowish turning red. Slash smelling like garlic, white with reddish lines over a yellow inner bark, fibrous. Leaves elliptix – lanceolate,n with entire margin. Leaf apex with a characteristic point (mucronate); petiole 2- 4 mm; blade about 10 x 3 cm, with about 7 pairs of looped laterals. Fruits smal, orbicular, on a zigzag twig. Two other Olax species are possibly present as shrubs or small trees: O. mannii (smooth twigs) and O. gambecola (pustulate twigs). Their leaves slightly resemble those of Celtis because of the strong, ascending basal nerves (tri-nerved).
