[Plant form]Small deciduous trees or trees, 2 to 10 meters high. Bark grayish black, branchlets densely brown pilose. Pinnate, compound, alternate, with enlarged base of total petiole, broadly winged leaves and total petiole, pale yellowish brown pubescent, 5-13 leaflets, sessile, ovate, ovate-elliptic to elliptic or Long ovoid, 5 to 14 cm long, 2.5 to 5 cm wide, apex acuminate, short acuminate or cuspidate. Base rounded or cuneate, margin coarsely serrate, green above, sparsely pubescent, grayish green below, densely pale brown pubescent; no petiole. Inflorescences terminal, 20–30 cm cm long, flowers small, with both sex flowers and male flowers; bracts of bisexual flowers 5, greenish yellow, long ovate, ca. 0.6 mm, apex obtuse, lateral and margin pubescent Petals 5, white, obovate-oblong, 1.6 mm long, apex rounded, margins and medial base pilose; stamens 5, inserted at disk edge, slightly shorter than petals, anthers yellow, elliptic, " "D" characters with yellow filaments; pistil shorter than stamens, ovary superior, densely pilose, styles 3, stigma capitate, yellow; male flowers slightly smaller than bisexual flowers, calyx, petals similar to bisexual flowers, stamens 5, shaped Small, degenerate ovary in the center.
