The short-styled flowers and the fruits of this species have not yet been documented or described. The flowers have a fragrance similar to the cultivated Gardenia, and the stipules are distinctive in form. This species is similar to Gaertnera edentata and Gaertnera psychotrioides, both also found on Mauritius.


Mauritius, in medium to tall evergreen forests at 500-700 m.
