Leaves narrowly elliptical to elliptical (oblanceolate, aberrantly obovate), (2.8-)3.8-10.3 × (1.1-) 1.3-4 cm. Inflorescences almost always racemose (rarely a racemiform or few-branched panicle), usually borne along length of twigs. Flowers whitish to pale green, pale yellow or cream-colored, 7-8-merous.

Vernacular names. – “Fotsakara” (Service Forestier 15282); “Fotsakara (petits feuilles)” (Service Forestier 2719); “Haraka” (Louvel 68); “Hazombalovary” (Louvel 146); “Hazombarorana” (Cours 2965); “Hazombato” (Ludovic & Rakotoarivony 213, Rabevohitra et al. 3876, Réserves Naturelles s.n., Service Forestier 1577, 1789, 5693, 5858, 5866, 16862, 17810); “Hazombato mena (lahy)” (Réserves Naturelles [Dumazer] s.n.); “Hazomboangy” (Service Forestier 11070); “Hazondrano” (Service Forestier 2861); “Marimbody” (Service Forestier 10155); “Maroankoditra” (Service Forestier 8916); “Masonambatsy” (Service Forestier 14449, 17999); “Menavony ” (Réserves Naturelles 8807); “Moranga ala” (Réserves Naturelles 3344); “Rodrano” (Service Forestier 14404); “Tsimahamasatsokina” (Service Forestier 16259); “Tsofofonjahana” (Bernard 126); “Voangiala” (Service Forestier 15183); “Zanganitofotsy” (Service Forestier 8090); “Zora” (Rakotovao 4713).

Uses. – Wood is used for construction (Service Forestier 16259, 17810, 17999).

Distribution, ecology and conservation status. – Homalium planiflorum subsp. planiflorum occurs most commonly in littoral and coastal eastern forests on sand, though it also occurs in low-elevation humid forests and rarely in mid-elevation forests (to 706 m) or dry forests. It is often described as occasional, but is common enough to be frequently collected. The preliminary assessment of its conservation status is “Least Concern” [LC].

Note. – Homalium planiflorum subsp. planiflorum has been reported to be visited by bees (Ludovic & Rakotoarivony 213).
