A small tree not exceeding 30 cm dbh. Orange-brown layers or stripes present in the outer blaze.
Leaf blades about 7-18 x 2-5 cm, aromatic when crushed but the odour is not particularly pleasant as it resembles crushed meat ants (Iridomyrmex sp.). Midrib raised on the upper surface. Lateral veins forming fairly definite loops inside the blade margin. Petiole grooved on the upper surface.
Sepals about 1-1.5 mm long. Petals about 2 mm long, glabrous on the outer surface, pubescent on the inner surface. Staminal filaments pubescent. Disk 8-lobed, continuous, glabrous, surrounding the ovary. Ovary pubescent.
Cotyledons about 7-12 mm long, margins +/- smooth to slightly crenate. First pair of leaves with crenate margins at least in the upper half. At the tenth leaf stage: leaf blade narrowly elliptic, apex acute or bluntly acuminate, base attenuate; midrib green, raised on the upper surface; lateral veins forming definite loops inside the blade margin; oil dots numerous, visible to the naked eye and readily visible with a lens; crushed leaves emit a strong odour.
