   This member of the Burseraceae family was given this name by Hans Schinz in 1908. It is found in Angola, Botswana, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Zambia and Zimbabwe, growing in a well drained soil with some water and lots of sun. It starts out with a nice swollen truck, but when the stem reach three to eight metres, it slims out.
