Notes: This species is characterized by its medium-sized, rather stiff, narrowly elliptic to elliptic-oblong leaves that are generally sharply acute at the apex; its several-flowered, subsessile, congested-cymose inflorescences; its developed calyx limb that is strigose externally and subtrucate to weakly lobed; its short corollas; its small to medium-sized fruits; and its habitat in rather dry vegetation. It has been collected infrequently in recent decades. It is similar to Tricalysia boiviniana, which has generally broader, thicker-textured leaves. It is also similar to Tricalysia dauphinensis, which has generally smaller flowers and more broadly elliptic leaves.
