Flower-heads mostly about 4 mm wide, convex above. Bracts villous on the dorsal surface; the outer leaf-like; the inner oblanceolate. Bracteoles linear, villous on the dorsal surface. Calyx-tube obconic, glabrous, adhering to the ovary except the upper part: calyx-lobes broad-based, linear-lanceolate, villous on the dorsal surface. Petals about 1-5 mm long, obovate, obtuse, glabrous, indistinctly keeled on the lower half. Anthers rotund, reaching to about the middle of the petals.
