Notes: This species is characterized by its somewhat slender habit; its elliptic to ovate leaves that are acuminate at the apex; its short stipule awns; its subsessile, congested-cymose, several-flowered inflorescences; its corollas that are acute to acuminate in bud; its medium-sized (in Tricalysia) fruits; and its habitat in dry forest vegetation. It is similar to Tricalysia ambrensis subsp. ambrensis from extreme northern Madagascar, which has 5-6-merous flowers vs. 4-merous in Tricalysia humbertii. Tricalysia humbertii is also similar to Tricalysia perrieri, which is found in Mahajunga.
