Tree up to 11 m high by 20 cm d.b.h.; bark smooth, brown, conspicuously grey or white patched. Twigs terete, 4—5 mm thick, glabrescent. Leaves 3—5-jugate; petiole slightly flattened above, 6—7.5 cm long, 1.5—2.5 mm thick; petiolules 4—10 mm long, above broad and flat with the midrib raised; axes hairy, glabrescent. Leaflets (sub)opposite, 6.5—16.5 by 2.5—6 cm, 2—3.25 times as long as wide, widest about to below the middle, stiff-pergamentaceous; either glabrous, or sparsely hairy on both sides of the midrib, sometimes also with a few hairs on the nerves beneath; base hardly to very oblique, the acroscopic side broader and/or lower attached than the basiscopic side, rounded to acute, slightly attenuate or not; margin serrate-dentate from near the base; apex acute, mucronate, midrib above prominulous; nerves c. 1 — 1.5 cm distant, obliquely patent, slightly curved, ending in marginal teeth, prominulous on both sides; intercalated veins hardly developed, veins and veinlets laxly reticulate. Inflorescences axillary, panicles, up to c. 6 cm long, with few obliquely patent to patent, up to 6 cm long branches, rather many-flowered, densely hairy, the peduncle c. 5 mm long, the pedicels very short. Calyx 1—1.2 mm high, nearly completely connate, inside sparsely hairy mainly at the base. Corolla absent. Stamens: filament 0.8-1.75 mm long, anther 1.25 mm long Pistil 2-merous, stigma apparently grooved. Fruits 2-lobed, deeply cordate especially when young, smooth, the lobes globular, c. 8 mm in diam., densely fulvous-tomentellous, the wall c. 0.5 mm thick.
