Leaflets 3, 5 or 7 (leaves rarely unifoliolate), the lateral ones opposite, blades bright green above, shiny (especially in young foliage), paler olive yellow green beneath, chartaceous to subcoriaceous, obovate or occasionally nearly elliptic, proximal ones 5–7.5 × 1.5–3 cm, distal ones 10–13 × 4–6 cm, glabrous, secondary veins 5 to 8 per side, weakly raised on both surfaces, tertiary veins obscure, base attenuate, margins entire, minutely thickened and revolute, apex rounded, rarely broadly acute; petiolules to 5 mm long or leaflets sessile; rachis weakly articulated at petiolule bases; petiole 1.5–4 cm long, 2–2.5 mm in diam., the weakly clasping base with a minute scarious margin. Inflorescence terminal, a loose open panicle of umbellules, glabrous, primary axis to circa 10 cm long; secondary axes 2 to 4, 7–12 cm long, or primary axis highly reduced and secondary axes appearing to be born together from the branch tip, umbellules 4 to 6 per secondary axis, most or all in a terminal umbel, occasionally 1 or 2 borne along the axis; peduncles 20–40 mm long; involucral bracts unknown, caducous; umbellules with 3 to 7 fruits; pedicels 13–15 mm long, 0.6–0.8 mm in diam. in fruit, glabrous, with an evident cupuliform articulation (pseudocalyx) below the ovary. Flowers unknown, ovary 4– or 5-carpellate. Fruit a drupe, ellipsoid to weakly obovoid or nearly globose, 5–7.5 mm tall, 4–7.5 mm wide, glabrous, base broadly acute to nearly rounded, apex rounded, calyx a low rim <0.5 mm high, disc flat, styles divergent, circa 0.5 mm long, broadly conical, ribs 4 or 5, inconspicuous when fresh, evident when dry; pyrenes 4 or 5, each 1-seeded.
