Guibourtia arnoldiana (mutenyé, benge, or mbenge) is a species of Guibourtia in the family Fabaceae, native to tropical western Africa from the Gabon, Republic of the Congo, western Democratic Republic of the Congo, and northernmost Angola (Cabinda).[1][2]

It is a tree growing to 20–30 m tall, with a trunk 40–80 cm diameter.[3]

The wood is valuable, durable and moderately resistant to wood-boring insects including termites. It is used for joinery, furniture, flooring, and decorative panelling.[3]
