Combretocarpus is a monotypic genus of tree in the Anisophylleaceae family. The generic name combretocarpus is from the Greek, referring to the resemblance of its fruit to that of the genus Combretum.[3] As of April 2014 The Plant List recognises the single species Combretocarpus rotundatus.[4]

Combretocarpus rotundatus grows as a tree up to 40 metres (130 ft) tall with a trunk diameter of up to 1 metre (3 ft 3 in). The fissured bark is grey-brown to brown. The bisexual flowers are yellow. The fruits have three or four wings and measure up to 3 cm (1 in) long. The hard heavy wood is used in heavy construction and for indoor floors and panels.[3]
Distribution and habitat

Combretocarpus rotundatus grows naturally in Sumatra, Peninsular Malaysia and Borneo. Its habitat is swamp and kerangas forests.[3]
