This species grows in the Amazon Basin.
The sapwood closets to the bark is white, but gradually darkens as it blends into the heartwood. The heartwood is a creamy yellow, which darkens to a orangey-tan color. The grain is interlocked and irregular and can frequently have a ropey or mottled figure. The texture is fine and even.
