Jagera are native to Australia (Qld. and N.S.W.) and New Guinea.
World Flora Online lists 16 names but they only accept Jagera javanica as a species.
Most of the others names are listed as ambiguous (including J. pseudorhus) and two are synonyms.
Mabberley recognises 2 species while others say 3 or 4.
Jagera pseudorhus is the Foambark or Pink tamarind and Jagera madida is the Daintree foambark.

They are trees or shrubs with pinnate leaves.
Parts are commonly covered in simple or glandular rust-coloured hairs.
The leaflet edges may be smooth or have a few to many teeth.
Leaves have 1 to 19 pairs of leaflets mostly over 4 cm long.
Most leaves do not have a single terminal leaflet.
The cup-shaped calyx has 4, 5 or 6 free ovate sepals.
On the inner base of the petals is a hairy flap.
The ovary has 1 or 2 ovules in each locule.
The fruit are loculicidal capsules with irritant rust-coloured hairs on both surfaces.
