Taxon Profile     (Last Modified On 7/1/2012)
Description: Tree, unarmed, 6–15 m tall, andromonoecious (or possibly hermaphroditic), evergreen, trunk unbranched below, unarmed, 10–20 cm dbh, sparsely branched toward apex. Leaves imparipinnately compound, 30–60 cm long. Leaflets 9 to 15 (almost always odd in number), lateral ones opposite, baldes medium green above, usually shiny, slightly paler beneath, thick chartaceous, elliptic to obovate, 6–14 × 3–7 cm, (proximal ones slightly smaller), glabrous, secondary veins 10 to 12 per side, raised on both surfaces, base cuneate to attenuate, margins entire, minutely to moderately revolute, apex rounded or acute to short acuminate; petiolules 8–12 mm long; rachis weakly articulated at petiolule bases; petiole 5.5–9 cm long, 4–4.5 mm in diam., the weakly clasping base with a slightly scarious margin to 1 mm wide. Inflorescence terminal, a panicle of umbellules, glabrous, primary axis erect, circa 40–70 cm long; secondary axes circa 30 to 40, the basal ones 23–30 cm long, progressively shorter toward the apex, each with 20 to 30 umbellules borne evenly throughout their length, the basal ones apparently abortive, leaving an evident scar; peduncles 7–20 mm long in flower, to 25 mm in fruit, nearly always with 1 or 2 scars below the apex, each left by a caducous flower and its subtending broadly ovate bract; umbellules with 5 to 8 flowers; involucre caducous, bracts broadly ovate; pedicels 1–2 mm long, 0.7–1 mm in diam. in flower, to 4.5 mm in fruit, thickening to circa 1.2 mm in diam., very pale green, glabrous, with an articulation below the ovary. Calyx a scarious undulate rim, entire or somewhat lacerate. Corolla narrowly ovoid in bud, circa 2–2.5 mm in diam. prior to anthesis; petals 5, narrowly ovate, circa 3–3.5 mm long, greenish white, spreading at anthesis. Stamens 5, erect at anthesis; anthers whitish. Ovary 5-carpellate, pale green, glabrous, globose in flower. Fruit a drupe, globose, 4.5–7 mm in diam., medium pale green when immature, turning reddish purple at maturity, contrasting with the whitish pedicel, glabrous, base and apex rounded, articulation obscure, forming an indistinct ring near the base of the fruit above the point of insertion of the pedicel, calyx a low rim 0.2 mm high, disc slightly concave, styles short, spreading, not exceeding 0.5 mm, ribs evident; pyrenes 5, each 1-seeded.
