    A weak decumbent perennial, sparse to densely pubescent. Cauline leaves narrow. oblong to oblanceolate, hairy, with hairs of unequal size-some arising from tuberculate base. Nutlets 2-2.5 x 1.5 mm, minutely hairy on both surfaces. Appendages up to 0.6 mm long, bases free or slightly united.

    Closely related to var. fruticulosum but differing in the sessile leaves with unequal hairs and larger nutlets. A form of this taxon with larger glabrous fruits and appendages united at base (A. spathulatum var. thomsonii (C.B. Clarke) Kazmi, l.c.) occurs in W. Tibet and Ladak.
