Notes: This species is characterized by its medium-sized, rather coriaceous, elliptic to narrowly elliptic 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 very short corollas; its rather small fruits; and its habitat in rather dry vegetation. This species is somewhat similar to Tricalysia perrieri, which has leaves often broader and of thinner texture, and more developed lobes on the calyx limb.
