- limine 1.5-2 mm alto, basem androgynam leviter involventi, with the limen 1.5-2 mm tall, weakly involving the androgynous base.

- spicis lateralibus androgynis, with lateral spikes androgynous.

- flores in capitulo centripetim evoluti, in capitulis heterogamis androgynis flores [fem.]semper in ambitu 1-oo-seriatim dispositi, [hermaphroditic] in disco centrales, flowers centripetally developed into little heads, female flowers arranged in heterogamous androgynous capitula always on the circumference 1-indeterminate serially arranged, the hermaphroditic (flowers) central on the disc.

NOTE: hermaphroditic, q.v., is having stamens and pistils in the same flower; ‘heterogamous’ indicates having at least two flower types, as neuter, unisexual and hermaphrodite in the same inflorescence.

 

A work in progress, presently with preliminary A through R, and S, and with S (in part) through Z essentially completed.
