Small, bifoliolate leaves. Leaflets pulvinate and laminae strongly asymmetrical, obliquely ovate or slightly falcate. Leaflet apexes obtuse. Bases wide cuneate or slightly concave. Margin entire. Primary veins basal acrodromous (3-4 in number) and curved on the exmedial side, not reaching the leaflet margin. Secondary veins brochidodromous. Tertiary veins percurrent or ramified, straight, convex or sinuous. Quaternary veins forming irregular polygons. Aerolation well developed. Freely ending veinlets mostly branching once. Marginal ultimate veins looped and fimbriate.
