Corollas lavender to magenta or red with diffuse dark markings on sides of darker tube-throat, lobes dark at base, without radiating dark lines, floor and palate ridges white or yellow fading distally to white, palate ridges and throat ceiling villous-pilose, tube-throat 10–20 mm, limb 8–20 mm diam., not bilabiate. Anthers included, ciliate. Styles glabrous or sparsely eglandular-puberulent. Stigmas included, lobes unequal, abaxial 3–4 times adaxial. Capsules 6–9 mm. 2n = 16.
