Bush or small tree up to 5 m. tall; bark on older specimens chestnut-brown, polygonal-reticulate on bole, flaking in scales 2 cm. across, greenish on branches and peeling in papery buff strips; young branches densely pubescent.
Many-stemmed shrub or bush, up to 2.5 m high. Leaves sparsely pilose to pubescent, 3-foliolate or imparipinnate; lamina up to 90 mm long; terminal leaflet elliptic to obovate, 35 x 20 mm. Flowers yellow to green.
Dioecious many-stemmed shrub or bush 0.5-2.5 m tall; bark grey to dark grey with brownish lenticels, often flaking locally in yellowish papery pieces; young branchlets sparsely pilose to densely pubescent, not spine-tipped. Leaves trifoliolate or pinnate, 2-4-jugate, sparsely pilose to densely pubescent, green; petiole 5-22 mm; upper three-quarters of leaflet margin crenate-serrate, lower quarter subentire to entire, terminal leaflet elliptic to broadly elliptic rarely obovate, (10-)16(-32) x (7-)10(-20) mm; petiolule 1-3(-9) mm; apex acute, rarely obtuse, base cuneate, rarely obtuse, lateral leaflets elliptic to broadly elliptic, rarely suborbicular, (5-)12(-30) x (4-)8(-18) mm, subsessile or sessile, apex acute, rarely obtuse, base cuneate or obtuse. Inflorescence: simple or compound dichasial cymes up to 50 mm long, sparsely pilose to densely pubescent. Flowers unisexual, perigynous. Pedicel 2-5 mm long, pedicel, hypanthium, calyx and corolla sparsely pilose to densely pubescent. Disc reduced without distinct lobes, adnate to hypanthium. Stamens 8. Fruit subglobose or ellipsoid, ±13 x 11 x 9 mm, pilose; putamen smooth; pseudo-aril cupular with 2 facial lobes of variable length and form, covering lower quarter to half of putamen, lobe on less convex face of putamen usually longer than other lobe.
