Ruddia fordiana (Oliver) Yakovlev.

Trees; to 17 m; to 20 cm d.b.h. Bark of stems dark gray; with shallow longitudinal stripes. Young branches and leaves densely appressed rusty brown pubescent; becoming sparsely hairy or glabrescent. Leaves imparipinnate; 19-40 cm; petiole 3.5-7 cm; rachis 5.5-15.5 cm; prolonged 3-15 mm below ter­minal leaflet; leaflets (5-)7-9(-13); petiolule 6-8 mm; grooved; rusty pubescent; becoming glabrate; blades obovate-lanceolate or obovate-elliptic; rarely elliptic; terminal leaflet larger; 6-20 x 1.5-7 cm; thinly leathery; base cuneate or suborbicular; apex acute or caudate; midvein raised abaxially; impressed adaxially; lateral veins 11 pairs; angled 40° with midvein; lateral veins and veinlets inconspicuous on both surfaces; scattered rusty brown appressed pubescent or glabrous abaxially; glabrous adaxially. Panicles terminal on young branches; 15-26 cm; peduncle and pedicel densely appressed rusty pubescent. Pedicel 6-12 mm; bractlets 2; at pedicel apex; lanceolate; 3-5 mm; densely ap­pressed rusty brown pubescent. Flowers 2-2.5 cm. Calyx light brown-green; 1.5-2 cm; teeth oblong-lanceolate; slightly obtuse; upper 2/3 of upper pair connate; densely appressed rusty pu­bescent; tube short. Corolla purplish red; ca. 1.5 cm; standard rounded; cucullate; upper margin strongly inflexed; yellow spotted subcentrally; claw short; thick; compressed; keel similar to wings; elliptic-obovate; apex obtuse; claw short. Stamens unequal; all functional; filaments basally thickly compressed. Ovary flattened; densely appressed rusty brown silky pubes­cent; ovules usually 4; style incurved; glabrescent. Legumes semicircular or oblong; 5-12 x 5-6.8 cm; apex obliquely beaked; stipe compressed; 5-10 mm; convex at seed; valves woody; dehiscent; ca. 2 mm thick; externally yellow pubescent or glabrescent; internally glossy; often whitish; stained reddish; septum absent; slightly thickened at margin; tip reflexed; calyx persistent. Seeds 1-4; large; oblong; obtuse at ends; 2.5-3.3 x 1.7-2.7 cm; slightly flattened; testa red or red-purple; fleshy; becoming thin and fragile when dry; hilum suborbicular; 3-4 mm. Fl. Jun-Jul; fr.
