    Tepals all narrowly lanceolate, tapering from base to apex and straight-sided, of similar length (c. 8–10 mm. long) but the inner progressively narrower, hyaline-margined, the firm portion 3-nerved with the lateral pair of nerves evanescent but the midrib excurrent in a short but sharp and rigid, straight arista, all more or less floccose with frequently longer fine hairs intermixed.

    Bracteoles of partial inflorescence 4–5 mm. long, deltoid-ovate, finally deeply concave with the midrib bent at c. 90 degrees to accommodate the sterile modified flowers when mature, glabrous to slightly floccose, shortly mucronate with the excurrent midrib.
