Phyllaries 22–26 in 5–6 series, greenish, often purple-tinged, 3–4-striate, subequal or unequal, margins narrowly scarious; outer lanceolate to lance-ovate (often herbaceous, glandular-hirtellous, equaling or surpassing inner, apices acute to long-attenuate), inner lanceolate to lance-linear (glabrous, apices obtuse to acute).

Brickellia chenopodina is known only from Grants County; it is similar in most respects to B. floribunda and may be little more than a shade form of the latter, with which it is sympatric.
