Description:
Abundant woody wine that produces white flowers in May. The seeds are produced in April, during the dry season. The leaves and stems are boiled and made into a tea to relieve inflammation. The tea must be drunk on an empty stomach. This plant is very similar to the plant known as beella quii (Sapindaceae Serjania aff. Oaxacana), which is toxic. It is therefore important to take care to identify this species correctly.
Habitat:
Selva baja caducifolia. Donde bajan a tomar agua los ganados.
