Radical leaves several, rosulate, long petiolate; petiole 1.5-7 cm, densely to sparsely tomentose, basally slightly expanded; blade adaxially whitish or pale green, suborbicular or pentagonal, 1-6 × 1-6 cm, abaxially densely white tomentose, adaxially sparsely white arachnoid and shortly pilose, obscurely palmately veined, base cordate, margin shallowly 5-lobed or angled or shallowly lobed with mucronulate teeth, apex rounded-obtuse. Stem leaves 1 or 2, small, shallowly lobed, shortly petiolate. Capitula 1.5-2 cm in diam., 2-10 or more, arranged in at first contracted terminal umbelliform corymbs; peduncles short, with a small basal leaflike bract and few small linear bracteoles. Involucres campanulate, 4-6 × ca. 6 mm, not calyculate; phyllaries 17, broadly lanceolate or lanceolate, 1.5-2 mm wide, herbaceous, inconspicuously 3-veined, apically acuminate or acute, marginally and apically reddish purple and ciliate.
