Description:Description - Medium-sized trees. Leafy twigs 1.5-3.0 mm thick, covered with very short patent hairs, intermixed with distinctly longer, light yellow, soft, more or less ascending hairs. Leaves oblong (to lanceolate), mostly broadest near the lower end, more or less inequilateral, 5-13 cm long, 2-5 cm broad, acuminate, acute to subcordate at the base, glabrescent above, pilose beneath; costa prominent, the other veins plane to slightly impressed above, prominent beneath, 13-18 pairs of secondary veins, most tertiary veins parallel; petioles 3-5 mm long; stipules 5-13 mm long, subsericeous to pilose. Staminate inflorescences 4-5 mm in diameter; involucre with 16-21 deltoid to suborbiculate to oblong to lanceolate, obtuse, yellow subsericeous bracts in ca 4 series; filaments o.2-0.6 mm long, anthers 1.1-1.9 mm long, 0.3-0.5 mm broad, apiculate, glabrous; interstaminal bracts 2-3 mm long, linear to narrowly spathulate, acute, hairy outside. Pistillate inflorescences ca 2 mm in diameter; involucre with ca 10 deltoid to ovate, obtuse, subsericeous bracts in 3 series; perianth 1.0-1.5 mm high, hirtellous, stigmas at least 7 mm long. Fruiting perianth ellipsoid to oblongoid, at least 12 × 6 mm, hirtellous.

Discussion:The anthers of the only staminate specimen examined are glabrous; apical hairs may be expected.
