Peduncles long, villous; bracts absent; rays 15–25, unequal, 2–5 cm, villous; bracteoles ca. 8, lanceolate, apex long-aristate, villous. Calyx teeth obsolete. Petals pinkish-white, obcordate. Young fruit ovoid-suborbicular (mature fruit unknown); lateral ribs winged; vittae 1 in each furrow, 2 on commissure. Fl. and fr. Aug–Sep.
