Psychine stylosa fruits are wider than high, with the pair of outstretched chartaceous wings forming a semicircular margin to the lower half of the fruit, but obtusely cleft apically, with a persistent elongate stylar extension equal to the length of the fruit and a stout pedicel, shortly stipitate.
