Notes

A little known species is Englerophyton magalismontana ; it seems to potentially become a big tree. It is a tree of swamps with sandy soil, to 15 m tall, swollen at the base with lateral extensions with pneumatophores, slightly raised above ground level. Twigs covered with a yellowish, silky layer of appressed hairs. Leaves simple, alternate, with a pubescent petiole of 1 – 3 cm. Blade oblong, ± 20 x 8 cm, long acuminate, cuneate, with a yellowish layer of appressed pubescence on the lower surface; numerous fine, parallel laterals. Synonym: Bequaertiodendron oubanguiense.
