This tree grows in French Guiana, Brazil, Peru, Panama, and Venezuela.
The wide sapwood is a yellowish-white in color, which is a stark contrast to the heartwood which is a deep rich red color. The texture can range from fine to course, and the grain can range from straight to heavily interlocked.
The pre-boring for nailing or screwing is a must. This wood has a moderate blunting effect on tooling, carbide or treated tooling is suggested.
