- Leaves petiolate, ovate-elliptical, abruptly rounded to the decurrent base and narrowed to a pointed apex; margins entire, or
along the sides provided with minute, sharp, upward-pointing teeth. Midrib slender and straight, with 6–7 to 9 pairs of thin, opposite
or alternate secondaries, which arise at an angle of about 40°, much curved upward and apparently arch around just inside the margin.
Veinlets very fine, mainly simple, oblique to the secondaries.
