Dioecious trees. Leaves paripinnate, 2-4-jugate. Inflorescences in the defoliated part of the branchlets above the leaf-scars, sometimes axillary, many-flowered fascicles or thyrses. Sometimes male and female flowers present in the same inflorescence, then one of the two kinds predominating, other may be sterile. Sepals 4 or 5 (or 6), connate in lower fourth, slightly valvate, lobes equal. Petals absent. Stamens (5-) 6-8 (-9), long exserted. Seeds completely enveloped by an arillode, which is thin-papery and often adhering to the endocarp when dried.
