This species has the large leaves with the "stained glass" panes of some members of the Dalbergaria group, but the fimbriate calyces of members of the Trichantha group.   However, I can find no reference as to taxonomic location.  A closeup  of the flowers shows the unusual form of the  calyx and corolla.
