Plants medium-sized, grass green, young inflorescences yellowish, often becoming reddish-brown, 25–30 (–40) cm, often robust. Stems densely spreading-hairy in distal 1/2. Leaves: stipules translucent to pale green proximally, apex green; blade reniform or reniform-orbiculate, rather shallowly 7–9-lobed, margins flat or slightly undulate, basal sinuses wide or narrow, basal lobes not overlapping, middle lobes rounded, equal to longer than their half-width; incisions usually relatively short, sometimes absent or relatively long; teeth usually slightly connivent, mostly slightly asymmetric but a few strongly so, apex acute to subobtuse, surfaces densely pubescent throughout, adaxial gray green to dark green. Inflorescences: primary branches densely hairy; peduncles sparsely hairy or glabrous. Pedicels glabrous or some of the proximal hairy. Flowers green, often becoming reddish; epicalyx bractlet lengths at least 0.5 times sepals (not longer, always narrower); hypanthium rounded at base, usually sparsely to densely spreading-hairy, rarely glabrous. Achenes exserted 1/5 from discs.
