Florets bisexual, zygomorphic, transitional between actinomorphic and ligulate, often villous; anther apical appendages apiculate to caudate, tails laciniate, long, acute, tails connate; style bilobed, branches appressed, dorsally pubescent reaching the bifurcation point, hairs acute.
5 mm long, ovoid to globose, with obtuse, apiculate apex, irregularly transversely tuberculate and papillate, sometimes the papillae near the base elongate and spinulose; hypogynium narrow, somewhat trigonous, with 6 finely puberulent globose tubercles in distinct pairs.
5) mm long, ovoid to subglobose, with obtuse, usually apiculate apex, smooth, glossy, white; hypogynium narrow, obscurely trigonous with a whitish papillose crust.

The relationships of the Guayana Highland-centered genera, according to the morphology, seem to point in two different directions: (1) they resemble genera or species of the Gochnatia complex in their discoid capitula with all tubular corollas (tribe Stifftieae), acuminate to apiculate anther appendages (e.

Florets isomorphic in bisexual capitula, corolla actinomorphic, tubular-funnelform, deeply five-lobed, lobes coiled; anther apical appendages apiculate, tails slightly papillose; style bifid, branches dorsally smooth; female capitula with florets without staminodes, corolla tubular-filiform, shallowly five-lobed, tube long, up to 2/3 of corolla length, lobes straight.
