Tree; twigs fine tomentulose. Leaves oblong or narrowly ovate, 10-20 cm long, 3-7 cm wide, apically short acuminate into a drip tip, basally obtuse, the costa elevated or plane above, elevated beneath to the tip, sparingly puberulent, lateral veins evident, ribs (veins plus ducts) 39-40 per cm, the margins mostly not drying revolute, petioles 1-1.5 cm long, drying dark, minutely tomentose, grooved above. Inflorescences short cymes fasciculate in the leaf axils, crowded, the peduncle basally pubescent, bracts wanting, bracteoles obsolete; pedicels ca. 1.5 cm long, glabrous, slender. Flowers perfect, sepals 2; petals 2(-3), ca. 8 mm long, rotund, apically ciliolate; stamens 60-100 (Stevens, 1976), the filaments ca. 3 mm long, basally connate, the anthers oblong, ca. 2 mm long; ovary glabrous, the style ca. 3 mm long, the stigma peltate. Fruit ovoid to globose, ca. 10 mm across, sometimes apiculate, drying brown, often glaucous, more or less smooth. This species is recognizable by the very numerous ribs of the leaves and by the small fruit.
