Vernacular names

Amphimas is a small genus of flowering plants in the legume family, Fabaceae. It belongs to the subfamily Faboideae. It is a west African tree used for medicine and for wood.[5] Amphimas was traditionally assigned to the tribe Sophoreae;[6] however, recent molecular phylogenetic analyses reassigned Amphimas into an unspecified position in the Meso-Papilionoideae.[7][1]
