Oxystigma oxyphyllum
(syn. Pterygopodium oxyphllum)

Oxystigma oxyphyllum of the family Fabaceae

There are at least 4 species, all from Africa, that have tchitola as all or part of one or more of their common names and I have no idea which of them are represented on this page. Oxystigma oxyphyllum (syn. Pterygopodium oxyphllum is the most common of these and so I have list it as the species name for tchitola. The others are Daniellia ogea, Daniellia thurifera, and Sindora klaineana
