the only legitimate pollinator of the plant, are neither seen to feed on the nectaries
of calyx and corolla nor even seen to encounter those floral parts during their visits.
The species can easily be distinguished from the other species of the area by viscous branches, leaves with 18-20 pairs of leaflets, 1-3 extra floral nectaries
localized on the rachis between the proximal pairs to leaflets and dry plane-compressed fruits.

Their flowers are 4 or 5-merous, with 1 or 2 nectaries
