A more or less pilose creeping herb
Slender trailing perennial, rooting at the lower nodes with the flowering tips frequently ascending and ± erect, rising to as much as ± 30 cm. or the height of surrounding herbs or grass, rootlets sparse to dense, lower internodes 0.6–8 cm., stem slender, greenish to red or brownish, striate.
Leaves not peltate, the lamina reniform or almost round, ± 7–50 mm. in diameter, 5–9-lobed with rounded to acute, bluntly to sharply or irregularly denticulate lobes, pilose on both surfaces though sometimes sparingly so above; petiole slender, 0.7–10(–20) cm., pilose throughout or (especially when very long) in the upper 2/3; stipules broadly ovate or oblong-ovate, hyaline (the lower becoming brownish and membranous), entire or shortly denticulate, without purplish streaks, ± 1–2.5 mm.
Fruit laterally compressed, yellowish green (sometimes reddish when ripe) ± 1.5–1.8 × 1 mm., the ribs filiform, very narrow but clearly prominent; stylopodia very flat, ± obsolete; styles spreading, slender, ± 0.4–0.6 mm.
Petals greenish to white, lanceolate, 0.5–0.75 mm.
Inflorescence a rounded capitate umbel of (8–)10–25(–30) flowers, 3–5 mm. in diameter; peduncle (0–)0.3–9(–15) cm., pilose to glabrous; involucre of ± 3–5 broadly or narrowly oblong, membranous, 0.5–1 mm. bracts; pedicels very short; bracteoles narrowly spathulate.
Inflorescence a subcapitate umbel; peduncle rather variable in length, but commonly c. 1/2 the length of the subtending petiole. Umbel of 10–30 flowers on very short to obsolete rays.
Fruit c. 1·0 × 1·5 mm., broadly ellipsoid, laterally compressed, brownish when ripe; apex and base distinctly emarginate; stylopodium depressed; styles short, spreading; stigmas slightly clavate; lateral ribs not strongly developed.
Leaves long-petiolate, 1–2 (3) at each node, circular to reniform, basal sinus very narrow.
Stem prostrate, terete, glabrous or with a few scattered hairs.
Lamina 1–5 × 0·75–4·5 cm., with 5–12 lobes, the sinuses between the lobes varying from shallow to extending halfway to the centre of the leaf; lobe margins subentire to crenate-dentate; inferior surface with numerous bristly hairs, especially on the veins; superior surface with similar hairs, which may be only very sparsely distributed.
Petioles 1·5–11 cm. long, sub-glabrous to hirsute, with numerous long, white, bristly hairs especially near the tip.
