Smooth Helicia is a shrub or small tree restricted to the rainforest remnants. It is quite rare in the Robertson area, which represents the southernmost limit of its distribution. The leaves are variable in shape, 5‒15 cm long, 1.5‒4 cm wide and often with marginal teeth, especially on young plants. Leaves are hairless with raised veins below. The inflorescences of pinkish flowers are followed by a fleshy fruit that is ovoid, about 12 mm in diameter and purplish, ripening from June to November.
