Disc florets 30-40; corollas yellow, often purple tinged, tubes 0.8-1 mm, throats tubular to tubular-funnelform, 1.2-1.4 mm, lobes 0.3-0.4 mm. Cypselae linear-oblong to oblanceolate, 2-2.8 mm, margins prominently calloused, long-ciliate; pappi of 2(-3+) barbellulate bristles 1.5-2.5 mm plus crowns of hyaline, laciniate scales. 2n = 34.
