Description Trees and shrubs. Leaves alternate or opposite, the blades penninerved, usually prominently and loosely reticulate above. Inflorescences axillary or subterminal, paniculate, short and few-flowered usually. Involucre none. Flowers perfect. Perianth-tube short, shallow, broadly obconical. Perianth-lobes subequal, or the outer shorter, deciduous. Stamens with filaments bearing anthers with two large cells; those of the outer series large, ovate, flattish, the connectives conspicuously protruding beyond the large introrse cells; stamens of the inner series with nar- rower, thicker anthers, with the connectives protruding beyond the lateral or extrorse-lateral cells, the filaments biglandular. Staminodia large, ovate-acute or triquetrous, shortly stalked or sessile. Gynaecium usually glabrous; ovary sub- globose, short, merging into the thick short obtuse style. Stigma almost incon- spicuous. Fruit usually ellipsoid, obtuse, outer layer thick or thin, usually fleshy, borne on a cylindrical, naked pedicel, scarcely elongated.
