Petiole 3-5 mm, white farinose when dry; leaf blade broadly obovate, 4-6.5 × 2.5-4 cm, rigidly leathery, abaxially with dense scalelike glands and ± glaucous when dry, base broadly cuneate and decurrent on petiole, apex rounded; secondary veins 10-12 on each side of midvein, ending at margin; tertiary veins abaxially not visible. Female inflorescences 2-4, congested at apex of branches, 4-7 cm; rachis ± with scalelike glands; cupules in clusters of ca. 3. Mature cupules unknown. Fl. Feb.

Further study is needed to determine whether plants named as Lithocarpus phansipanensis from Guangxi are in fact this species.
