Inflorescences: primary branches densely hairy; peduncles pubescent or almost glabrous. Pedicels glabrous. Flowers: epicalyx bractlet lengths 1 times sepals (as wide), often with blunt teeth, glabrous; epicalyx bractlets and sepals patent after flowering, giving appearance of an 8-point star; hypanthium usually densely, occasionally sparsely, hairy (in proximal 1/2).
