Sepals ovate or ovate-triangular, 4–6 mm. long and wide, obtuse to acute, shortly united at the base, often remaining as a loose persistent collar, completely covering the petals in bud, pubescent with coarse ferruginous stellate hairs.
Flowers terminal or extra-axillary, solitary or in 2-flowered cymes, hanging; peduncle ± 2–3 mm. long; pedicels0.5–2 cm. long, stellate-tomentose; bracts oblong, 2–3 mm. long, 1 mm. wide; bracteoles minute, 1 mm. long, soon deciduous.
Leaf-blades oblanceolate, obovate or oblong, (0.7–)3–8(–12) cm. long, (0.5–)1.3–3.9(–4.9) cm. wide, mostly distinctly acuminate at the apex or less often obtuse, rounded or more usually cordate at the base, somewhat coriaceous, above mostly deep green and sparsely pubescent with simple or stellate hairs or glabrous save on midrib, sparsely to densely covered with coarse openly spaced ferruginous stellate hairs beneath and with simple hairs on the nerves, rarely glabrous beneath; lateral nerves slightly impressed above; venation reticulate, usually prominent on both surfaces; petiole l–2.5(–4) cm. long, stellate-pubescent.
Stamens ± 1 mm. long; connective-prolongation broadened, truncate.
Petals white or yellow, oblong or oblong-lanceolate, subequal, 0.6–1.3 cm. long, 3–6 mm. wide, acute or obtuse, thin or slightly fleshy, puberulous on both surfaces with stellate hairs.
Fruiting pedicels 1–2 cm. long; monocarps orange, 5–15, globose or ovoid, 0.8–1.6 cm. long and wide, l–4(–?6)-seeded, not constricted between the seeds, obtuse, densely tomentose with ferruginous or brown hairs, rugose or verrucose; stipes 2–3 mm. long.
Much-branched aromatic shrub, small tree or liane 1.8–9 m. long or tall; branchlets with rather coarse granular stellate and often simple hairs when young, later glabrescent or glabrous, blackish, wrinkled and lenticellate.
Seeds shining brown, irregularly compressed-ovoid or shaped like the segment of an orange, 7–8 mm. long, 4–5 mm. wide, 3–4 mm. thick, usually with at least one sharp angle, with a paler irregularly quadrate arillar collar.
Branches rusty-pilose at first, eventually shortly pubescent or glabrous.
Shrub, small tree or liane, 2–6 m. high, much-branched.
Flowers terminal or extra-axillary, solitary or in cymose pairs, pendulous; pedicels 0.5–2 cm. long, rusty-pilose; bracteoles lanceolate, caducous.
Leaves petiolate; lamina (2) 3–8 (11.5) x 1.3–3.9 cm., oblanceolate or obovate to oblong, obtuse or usually with an acute acumen up to 2 cm. long at the apex, cordate (rarely rounded) at the base, subcoriaceous, deep glossy green or greyish-green and sparsely pubescent with simple (rarely stellate) hairs or glabrous (except along the midrib) above, paler green and sparsely or ± densely stellate-pubescent below (pilose with simple hairs along the nerves), with lateral nerves prominent below and densely reticulate venation prominent on both surfaces; petiole 1–2.5 (4) mm. long, rusty-pilose.
Fruit on a pedicel 10–20 mm. long; ripe carpels few (c. 5–15), 1–2 (3)-seeded, c. 0.9–1.2 x 0.9–1.2 cm., globose, not apiculate, not constricted between the seeds, rusty- or fawn-tomentellous, rugose or verrucose, with stipes 2–3 mm. long.
Stamens c. 1 mm. long, linear or obconic, yellowish; connective-prolongation broadened, truncate, puberulous.
Carpels pubescent; stigma orange.
Sepals 4–6 mm. long, shortly united at the base, covering the petals in bud and separating at anthesis, ovate or ovate-lanceolate, obtuse to acute, fawn- or rusty-pubescent on the outside.
