   This member of the Anacardicaceae family was described by Urs Eggli in 1995. It is found in the Orangea and Sahafary forests, north-eastern Madagascar, growing in sandy soils with some water and some sun. I think the stem will grow to 20 centimetres and the whole plant can grow to three meters high. 

The leaves are slightly hairy. The stem might be a little to slim to be at those pages (nepotism!).

A. Randrianasolo  & P. P. Lowry, 2006: "It can be distinguished from other members of the genus by its small elliptic to slightly obovate leaves with a rounded, mucronate apex, villous to lanate indument, and secondary venation on the lower surface that is moderately raised but does not form distinct cavities between the individual veins".
