Other NotesSpecies characteristics: This species develops either into a low spreading dense shrub often only 1-2 m tall and spreading as much as 15 m sometimes with more stems arising from a subterranean stolon, or a tree to 8 m high with a rounded crown (ssp. hebeclada); a large riverine shrub or tree to 7 m, lower branches often touching the ground (ssp. chobiensis); or a larger tree to 12 m with a dense flattish crown (ssp. tristis). The first two subspecies are very distinctive in having erect pale grey woody pods which may remain on the plant for months after maturing, and subspecies tristis which has facate pods which hang down and shed early after maturing. The species is typically found on Kalahari sand and on sandy alluvium associated with the Okavango-Chobe-upper Zambezi river systems. Common names: Angola: Muconda (Muhumbe), Mutantola (Muhumbe).
