Generally a small tree but can occasionally grow to 50 cm dbh. Stem normally with bumps on the trunk where the inflorescences arise.


Leaf blades about 7-14 x 3-6.5 cm, petioles about 0.4-1.1 cm long. Midrib grooved on the upper surface at least towards the base. Lateral veins about 15-24 on each side of the midrib.


Bracts generally absent at anthesis. Calyx tube (hypanthium) gradually tapering into a rather stout pedicel, calyx tube (hypanthium) + pedicel about 6-10 mm long, calyx tube (hypanthium) about 4-6 mm diam., calyx lobes short, rounded, uniform, about 0.5-1 mm long. Petals orbicular, about 5-7 mm diam., oil dots conspicuous, more than 100 per petal, fairly uniformly distributed over the outer surface. Outer staminal filaments about 8-12 mm long, anthers about 1 x 0.5 mm, gland inconspicuous. Ovules about 13 or 14 per locule, placentas axile, central, ovules radiating, ascending. Style about 5-8 mm long, substantially shorter than the stamens.


Fruits variable in shape, about 30-50 x 20-40 mm, calyx lobes persistent, difficult to measure precisely, pericarp succulent. Seed solitary, about 17-25 x 12-15 mm, testa adhering slightly to the pericarp, but adhering quite strongly to the uniformly textured cotyledons. Radicle basal, cotyledonary stipules present.


Cataphylls about 2 or 3 pairs, opposite, one pair occurring just above the cotyledons. At the tenth leaf stage: leaf blade obovate-elliptic, apex obtuse or acute, base attenuate, glabrous; oil dots numerous.
