I also have a lexicon entry for t. iboga.  I understand that none of
this is ideal...just trying to share what I do have.

"Tabernanthe iboga is a shrub 3-4 1/2 ft (1-1.5 m) tall, found in the
undergrowth of tropical forests but often cultivated in native
dooryards.  The shrub has copious white, vile-smelling latex.  The
ovate leaves, usually 3 1/2-4 in. (9-10 cm) long, about 1 1/4 in. (3
cm) wide (but occasionally up to 8 1/2 x 2 3/4 in or 22x7 cm), are
yellowish green beneath.  The tiny yellowish, pinkish or white- and
pink-spotted flowers, which grow in groups of 5 to 12 have a
crateriform corolla (a long, slender tube abruptly flaring at the
mouth) with twisted lobes, 1/4 in. (1 cm) long.  The ovoid, pointed
yellow-orange fruits occur in pairs and become as large as olives."
