Nice one! Photo from: Thomas Müller.

   This member of the Anacardicaceae family was described by Urs Eggli in 1995. It is found in a small area outside Toliara. Prefers a well drained soil, some water and lots of sun. The stem, or actually; caudex will grow to fifteen centimetres in diameter, the whole plant will reach one meter in height. The flowers are yellowish green.

A. Randrianasolo  & P. P. Lowry, 2006: "This species most closely resembles (and is often confused with) O. decaryi, but can readily be distinguished by the distinctive zig-zag pattern of its branches".
