Young fruits densely fulvous pubescent; styles 2, 1.5 mm. long, reflexed; stigmas obdeltoid, somewhat bifid at the apex; mature fruits subglobose, shallowly bilobed, 0.7–0.9 cm. long, 0.9–1.2 cm. diameter, smooth, sparingly pubescent, reddish brown; styles persistent.
Male flowers: very similar in all respects to those of D. gerrardii.
Flowers axillary, the males glomerulate-fasciculate in clusters of up to 20 or more, the females usually solitary.
Stipules oblong-linear, 1–1.5 mm. long, sparingly yellowish-puberulous, very soon falling.
Young shoots and petioles very sparingly puberulous to subglabrous or quite glabrous.
Petioles (2–)4–8 mm. long; leaf-blade obovate, broadly ovate, elliptic-ovate or elliptic-lanceolate, 4–10(–12) cm. long, 1.5–5(–8.5) cm. wide, acutely, subacutely or obtusely shortly acuminate, or else obtuse or rounded at apex, ± symmetrically cuneate or rounded at base, quite entire, coriaceous, shiny above, lateral nerves 4–6 pairs, somewhat irregularly looped within the margin, tertiary nerves strongly reticulate, those nearest the midrib not generally perpendicular to it and parallel, fairly prominent above and beneath, quite glabrous above and beneath, dark green, drying greyish or blackish-green.
Bark ± smooth, yellowish grey, flaking.
Twigs pale greyish-brown or whitish.
A shrub or slender, sometimes ill-formed tree up to 15 m. tall.
A several-stemmed shrub or long-branched small tree up to 15 m high, very like D. gerrardii, but with the leaf blades quite entire, light green, drying greyish- or blackish-green, shiny on both surfaces, the tertiary nerves more strongly and irregularly reticulate, and with the stigmas obdeltoid, somewhat bifid at the apex, and soon falling.
