Description:Variety Description - Tree ca. 7.6 m tall; branchlets and perules of terminal buds glabrous. Petiole subglabrous; leaflets to 14.5 × 8.3 cm, attenuate at base, coriaceous. Racemes 3-3.5 cm wide. Calyx (sub)glabrous, with teeth of 0.3-0.5 × 1-1.1 mm; petals 3.5-4.5 × 2.2-2.7 mm, brown-orange and green-tipped when alive, the upper side tinged with violet towards base and yellowish-green towards apex when dried, quite violet below when dried, glabrous; filaments purplish-tinged at base; gynoecium glabrous. Seeds (only 1, immature known), ca. 9 × 8 mm in outline, hilum 4.5 × 2.2 mm.

Discussion:This taxon is distinguished by glabrous branchlets and petioles, by smaller calyx teeth, and by the colors of the petals. The indument of the leaflet blade, and the pedicels are similar to those of var. goudotianus.
