asymmetric; sepals green, abaxial surface pilose
, elliptic to ovate or ovate to orbicular, 5-12 X 2-9; petals yellow, two external, oblong to ovate, 6-7 X 4-6 mm, two internal, orbicular, 7-8 X 5-5.
Stems sprawling or erect, brownish hirsute or pilose
Corniculi horn-like, internal malae long, anterior part pilose
The basal (sterile) part of the rachillae is pilose
8 mm long, deciduous, pilose
, margin glabrous; pedicel 1.
Pedicel erect or oblique relative to the stem, 10-23 mm long, green, rugose, scarcely pilose
, with glands toward the apex.
The leaves are 8 to 18 cm wide, shiny and glabrous, with exiguous and pilose
First pair of adanal setae (ad1), narrow and needle-like (ca 11-12 [micro]m), second pair (ad2) wider and apically pilose
(ca 18-20 [micro]m).
The present findings are in conformity with those of Quisenberry and Rummel (1979) who reported that pilose
was associated with high level of resistance to thrips.
5 cm, basally oblique, apically acuminate, marginally irregularly dentate, adaxially green, pilose
with 8 celled trichomes, abaxially pale green, pilose
with 5-7 celled trichomes, 9-10 veined on the larger side of the blade.
Head: wider than long, the anterior process short with small clypeus; gena reduced, not exceeding apex of clypeus; antenniferous tubercles blunt; eyes large, semiglobose; postocular margins broadly rounded without tubercles or spine, not exceeding outer margins of eyes, converging on constricted neck; antenna long and stout, first and fourth segments subequal in length, second shortest, third longest, first incrassate, second, third and fourth clavate, fourth with pilose
