Leaves: stipules green or slightly purplish tinged, turning brown; blade orbiculate, 7–9-lobed, margins undulate, basal sinuses appearing closed, basal lobes overlapping, middle lobes rounded, as long as or longer than their half-widths; incisions relatively short to long; teeth ± connivent, slightly asymmetric, apex acute, abaxial surface with nerves hairy throughout, internerve regions glabrous or densely hairy throughout, adaxial glabrous or hairy only on folds. Inflorescences: primary branches densely hairy; peduncles hairy or glabrous. Pedicels glabrous. Flowers: epicalyx bractlet lengths equal to slightly longer than sepals (usually almost as wide); epicalyx segments and sepals patent after flowering, giving appearance of an 8-point star; hypanthium usually shorter than sepals, glabrous. Achenes exserted from discs (distinctly longer than hypanthia).
