Notes: This species is characterized by its slender habit; its medium-sized, quite narrowly elliptic leaves that are generally tapered then shortly obtuse to rounded at the apex; its few-flowered, congested, subsessile inflorescences; its cupuliform, denticulate, developed calyx limb; its short corollas; and its rather small fruits. This is one of the most commonly collected species of Tricalysia in Madagascar. This species was previously confused with Tricalysia dauphinensis, which is found in the same region in Toliara and has leaves that are generally broader and sharply acuminate at the apex.
