Inflorescences and flowers appearing with the leaves, the ♂ often in pairs on a common peduncle (but galled flowers only seen), the ♀ single.
Leaves 3-foliolate on short-shoots, 3–5(–7)-foliolate on long-shoots; petiole up to 35 mm. long, usually longer, often much longer, than the lateral leaflets; leaflets with 1–6 crenations above the middle on each side, ± entire below, the terminal usually abruptly narrowed into a remarkable narrow stalk-like base 1–10 mm. long which is easily mistaken for an extension of the rhachis, the expanded portion obovate or oblate, rounded, truncate or emarginate, often broader than long, up to 17 mm. long and 20 mm. wide; lateral leaflets almost sessile, orbicular to elliptic-obovate, up to 11 mm. long and 10 mm. wide.
Small spreading glabrous tree 2–4(–6) m. tall, often broader than tall, with a well-defined but short trunk up to 1.5 m. tall and 12 or 15 cm. in diameter, lower branches sagging and often lying on the ground; bark white, peeling in large sheets from the blue-green under-bark; slash reddish; exudate almost scentless; young twigs fluted, 1–1.5 mm. in diameter.
Calyx divided almost to the base into triangular-ovate lobes ± 1.3 mm. long.
Fruit-stalk 4–14 mm. long, of which 2–10 mm. peduncle, 2–4 mm. pedicel; drupe glabrous, flattened-ellipsoid, apiculate, measuring, when dry, 7–8 × 6–7 × (2.5 + 3) mm.; pseudaril with broad ovate facial lobes covering most of the stone and no sutural lobes; stone smooth, with both faces gently convex, ± 6.5 × 5 × (1.2 + 1.8) mm.
