Leaves on mature trees opposite, sessile, lanceolate to broadly ovate, cordate, 5-10 cm long, 2.5-6 cm wide, sometimes scabrous, grey-green; lateral veins at 55° -75° , curved towards margin. Umbels 3-7-flowered; peduncle 12-25 mm long, setose; pedicels 4-8 mm long, setose. Buds ovoid to pyriform; operculum hemispherical-conical, 5-7 mm long, 7-8 mm wide; hypanthium truncate-ovoid, 9-11 mm long, 7-8 mm wide. Fruits pedicellate, ovoid to suburceolate, 15-25 mm long and wide, woody, setose when young, becoming smooth. Seeds winged at one end, yellow-brown.
