Flowers large, solitary in the leaf axils, pedicels about 2.5-10 cm long. Calyx +/- cupular with minute teeth, but spreading as the flower develops. Corolla large, about 6-7 cm long, mainly yellow (red towards the base) but turning pink or red throughout following anthesis. Stamens fused to form a central column, anthers horseshoe-shaped. Ovules 4 per locule.


Fruits depressed globular to broadly ovoid, about 25-45 mm diam. Seeds about 15 x 10 mm, densely hairy. Cotyledons crumpled and rolled.


Cotyledons transversely elliptic, about 19-27 x 31-47 mm, 5-veined, numerous dark red glands visible with a lens. At the tenth leaf stage: leaves cordate, apex acuminate, base cordate, leaf blade glabrous with a few reddish scales on the upper surface; numerous oil glands visible with a lens; petiole, stem and terminal bud clothed in round or stellate reddish scales; stipules linear, about 2 mm long.

Distribution and Ecology

Occurs in WA, NT, CYP, NEQ and southwards to coastal central Queensland. Altitudinal range very small, at or slightly above sea level. Grows in beach forest, gallery forest (particularly on banks of tidal streams) and on beaches. Also occurs on Indian Ocean Islands, SE Asia and Malesia.

Natural History

A widespread medicinal use for this plant has been in skin infections. Investigations have shown that the fruits contain a principle described as remarkably active against bacteria of the intestinal tract, and promising for exploitation in curing intestinal disturbances. Cribb (1981).
