lobes with tapered prolonged tips.

There were few accessions in the lanceolate
or linear classes and even fewer large leaflet types.

The anterior lobe, the largest one, is lanceolate

setae inserted at base.
Female flowers: to 4-5 mm wide at anthesis; sepals 3(4), <1 mm long, triangular, red tipped; petals 3(4), lanceolate

However, the leaves of Annularia are linear-lanceolate
or spatulate, with the broadest part in the middle of the leaf or near the apex; Asterophyllites has narrower, almost parallel-sided leaves, with the broadest part in the lower third, and a pointed apex.
These leaves with different shapes can be grouped into two distinct categories; the first one is called ovate and includes basal and petiolate leaves, arranged in the form of a rosette, while the second one, the lanceolate
, refers to smaller leaves and amplexicaul leaves that emerge after stem elongation.
This shape combined the characters of lanceolate
and oblong shapes (Table 3).
