The species described here, which is probably the only one of its genus, bears a marked resemblance to the larches in foliage and branching, but is remarkably distinct in its clustered male catkins (solitary in Larix), and in the large woody scales of the cone, which falls to pieces when ripe (remaining intact in Larix).
