Sapwood surface corrugated.
Younger leaf bearing twigs longitudinally grooved. Leaflets about 6-8 in the compound leaf, each leaflet blade about 5-18 x 1.5-8 cm. Midrib usually raised on the upper surface of the leaflet blades. Leaflet stalks quite short and swollen at their junction with the compound leaf rhachis. Domatia are foveoles but difficult to see on hairy leaves.
First few leaves simple, ovate. At the tenth leaf stage: leaf simple, trifoliolate or pinnate with 2 or 4 leaflets, leaflet blades ovate, apex acuminate-mucronate, glabrous; small or large foveoles sometimes present on the underside; petiole and rhachis of compound leaf clothed in short prostrate hairs.
