Simarouba amara has earned the common name “hombre grande” because only a brave man can stomach the exceptionally bitter taste of the leaves. The species is also distinguished by reddish veins and a winged rachis. (Legumes in the genus Inga also have a winged rachis, but always have an even number of leaflets and nectaries between the leaflets.) Also known as Quassia amara.
