Notes

A very common, small, rarely medium-sized tree found in secondary forests and on coastal savannas. Look for the crater-like glands on petiole and rachises. This species not to be confused with Pentaclethra macrophylla with similar rhombic leaflets, but Albizia has glands on petiole and rachis, whereas Pentaclethra has stellate hairs on the petiole. See also PROTA database.
