Outer dead bark pale brown.
Leaf blades about 7-15 x 3-5 cm, petioles about 0.5-1.5 mm long. Oil dots generally sparsely distributed, visible with a lens or just visible to the naked eye. Midrib depressed on the upper surface.
Bracts deciduous, absent at anthesis. Calyx tube (hypanthium) + pedicel about 3.5-5 mm long, calyx tube (hypanthium) about 2.5-3.5 mm diam., calyx lobes short, rounded, about 0.3 mm long. Petals cohering and shed as an operculum (or operculum-like unit) each petal +/- orbicular or rounded, about 3-3.5 mm diam., oil dots up to about 30-40 per petal. Outer staminal filaments about 4-7 mm long, anthers about 0.6-0.7 x 0.5-0.7 mm, gland comparatively small, terminal, near the back of the anther. Ovules about 14-16 per locule, placentas central, ovules radiating, ascending. Style about 4-6 mm long, shorter than the stamens.
Fruits depressed globular or depressed obovoid, excavated at the apex, attaining about 20 x 25-35 mm, calyx lobes persistent but very small and inconspicuous, pericarp succulent. Seed solitary, attaining about 15-20 mm diam., testa adhering to the pericarp but free from the rugose surface of the uniformly textured cotyledons although penetrating between the cotyledons. Radicle central or lateral, cotyledonary stipules present.
Cataphylls about 3-5 pairs. At the tenth leaf stage: leaf blade elongate–obovate, apex rounded or acute, base attenuate, glabrous; oil dots small, visible with a lens. Seed germination time 19 to 37 days.
