Aglaia (family Meliaceae) A genus of trees, most of which are medium-sized. They have twigs with stellate hairs, and leaves that are large and pinnate (or, rarely, simple). The flowers are tiny, borne in panicles, and often fragrant. The fruit is one- or few-seeded, the pericarp leathery and dehiscent, and the seed large, with a fleshy jacket. A few members of this genus are timber species (including the former genus Amoora). There are 100 species, occurring from China to the western Pacific.
