Heads borne singly or in open to crowded, corymbiform arrays. Involucres broadly urceolate to globose, 8–13 × 12–22 mm (often subtended by leaflike bracts). Phyllaries in 5–6 series, reflexed to spreading, linear to lanceolate, apices subulate to terete, ± recurved to straight (terminal setae incurved), moderately to strongly resinous.
