One of the rainforest treasure trees of FNQ. This is the only member of the Corynocarpaceae in Far North Queensland, with another subtropical member C. rupestris further down south. Another six species grows in New Guinea, New Zealand, and islands in the western Pacific Ocean.
This species is most easily recognizable by the large (over 5cm wide) red shiny fruits. There are also small stipules at the leaf axils and the alternately arranged leaves have a prominent midrib that is raise on the upperside.
