Distribution and Ecology

Endemic to NEQ, largely restricted to the area between Gordonvale and Tully and westwards to the edge of the Atherton Tableland but also collected in the Daintree-Cape Tribulation area. Altitudinal range from near sea level to 750 m. Grows as an understory tree in well developed rain forest on a variety of sites.

Natural History

This shrub or small tree has potential for tropical gardens. It will grow in shady conditions. The large flowers are brownish and the fruits are red.

This species has no commercial value as it is too small to produce millable logs and the fruits are of no interest.

Wood specific gravity 0.81. Hyland (1983).



Shrub (woody or herbaceous, 1-6 m tall)
