- amphigastriis usque ca. 0.1--0.25 longitudinis bifidis, with underleaves bifid to about 0.1 -- 0.25 of the length.

- amphigastriis ad 1/2 bifidis, bracteolis 1/2 bifidis, with underleaves bifid to 1/2, with bracteoles 1/2 bifid.

- petala (sepalave) 4-6, hypogyna subcoriacea, in aestivatione valvata, nunc libera, nunc omnia aut nonnulla binatim coalita et sic semibifida visa (DeCandolle), petals (or sepals) 4-6, hypogynous, somewhat leathery, in aestivation valvate, sometimes free, sometimes all or some fused by twos and thus are seen as half-way bifid.

 

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