Lamina of larger leaves 16-26 cm long, 11-16 cm wide, broadly elliptical, broadly cuneate at base, rounded and apiculate or shallowly retuse at apex, adaxially glabrate
at maturity except persistently loosely sericeous on midrib, abaxially densely and persistently appressed-tomentose with the hairs sessile or short-stalked and the crosspiece ca.
Epicarp smooth (rarely with indument, scale-like spines or glabrate
when fruit unripe); pistillate flowers 2-5 per rachilla--6
Leaves alternate, often clustered at the stem apex; petiolate; blades narrowly spathulate, oblanceolate to obovate, coriaceous, pinnately veined, margins entire, thickened, revolute, glabrous, if pubescent, then generally rapidly glabrate
. Capitulescences monocephalous, terminal; capitula sessile to subsessile, homogamous, discoid; receptacle partially paleate to epaleate; involucre multiseriate.
Leaves alternate, deciduous; commonly petiolate; blades ovate to orbicular, coriaceous, less commonly chartaceous, caducous, pinnately veined, margin entire, both surfaces densely tomentose to glabrate
. Capitulescences monocephalous or two- to ten-headed, loosely to densely corymbose to racemose; capitula massive, short-pedunculate to sessile, homogamous, discoid; receptacle strongly paleate-setiferous to epaleate, paleae long-linear, flat; involucre multiseriate.
