- cellulae sectione transversali triangulae vel trapezoideae vel rectangulares, cells in transverse section triangular or trapezoidal or rectangular.

- folia subopposita, anguste oblonga vel subtrapezoidea, leaves subopposite, narrowly oblong to weakly trapezoid.

- ovarium trapezio-obovoideum, e carpellis 3 liberis vertice exsculptis in stylos erectos crassos subcohaerentes attenuatis (B&H), the ovary trapezoid-[i.e. with 4 unequal sides] obovoid, [composed] from 3 free carpels pitted at the apex, narrowed into erect, thick, somewhat coherent styles.
