Due to its dense and wide crown, it can easily reach 35 meters in height. This species has a wide distribution and is highly variegated, but the leaves, flowers and nuts are quite distinctive. The leathery, evergreen leaves are glabrous, but covered with yellowish, hairy scales. The inflorescences consist of eight to ten male catkins, also tending to yellow. The winged fruits measure up to 2 inches wide and are propagated by wind and by insects.

    The tree is harvested in the wild for local use of its wood. It belongs to a group of timbers known in the business as "Dungun Paya" and is sometimes traded.
