Stems golden, thin, ca. 1 mm in diam. Inflorescences lateral, compact cymose glomerules, few to many flowered, subsessile; bracts scaly. Pedicel 1-2.5 mm. Calyx cupular, ca. as long as corolla tube; sepals 3-5, oblong or circular, often unequal, 0.8-1.8 mm, apex rotund. Corolla white or creamy white, cupular, ca. 2 mm; lobes persistent, erect, ovate or oblong. Stamens inserted at sinus, shorter than lobes; scales shorter than tube, deeply 2-cleft, fimbrillate. Ovary depressed globose. Styles 2, equal or unequal in length; stigmas globose. Capsule enclosed by persistent corolla, depressed-globose, 3-4 mm in diam., irregularly opening, not circumscissile. Seeds 4, brownish, ovoid, ca. 1.5 mm, scabrous.
Leafless parasitic twiner with very slender tangled stems bright yellow or reddish-orange in colour
Stems fairly slender, up to 0.5 mm. in diameter.
Scales reaching nearly to the base of the filaments, much fringed apically, not bifid, slightly bifid or completely bifid and then consisting of one fringed lobe on either side of the areas of the corolla-tube below the filaments.
Corolla-lobes rounded, obtuse or somewhat triangular but blunt.
Stamens short up to 1 mm. long; filaments usually very short.
Flowers about 2 mm. long and broad (up to 3 mm. in fruit), arranged in rather loose to compact cymose clusters; pedicels shorter than the flowers.
Styles about 0.5–1 mm. long, divergent.
Capsule globose, not splitting at base, drying a reddish-brown colour; intrastylar opening 1–1.5 mm. long, often almost circular.
Scales shorter than the tube, reaching nearly to the base of the filaments, much fringed apically, not bifid or variously bifid sometimes consisting of one fringed lobe on either side of the area of the corolla tube below the filaments.
Ovary globose; styles stout, shorter than the ovary, divergent and intrastylar aperture large.
Capsule globose or somewhat obpyriform, not splitting at base; intrastylar opening 1–1·5 mm. long, often almost circular.
Seeds ellipsoid to ovoid up to 1·5 mm. long.
Flowers 2–3 mm. long and broad, accrescent in fruit, often somewhat glandular, subsessile, often obpyriform in fruit.
Calyx about as long as the corolla tube; lobes broad, ovate-circular, obtuse, not overlapping.
Stems medium thick up to 0·5 mm. in diam.
Inflorescences rather loose to dense cymose and subglobose clusters.
Corolla campanulate; lobes rounded, obtuse or somewhat triangular but blunt, shorter than or as long as the tube, erect to somewhat spreading.
Stamens shorter than the corolla lobes; filaments usually very short and stout, more or less subulate; anthers broadly elliptic to subcircular.
Twining parasite. Scales in corolla tube bifid at apex or entire. Corolla lobes obtuse, usually shorter than tube. Styles 2, free to base; stigmas globose. Flowers 5-mer-ous, subsessile, in globose clusters. Flowers cream or yellow.
Stems medium, yellowish. Flowers often somewhat glandular, 2-3 mm long, subsessile, in loose to dense subglobose clusters. Calyx ± as long as corolla tube; lobes broad, ovate to suborbicular, apex rounded. Corolla campanulate; lobes shorter than or as long as tube, erect to somewhat spreading, broad, apex rounded. Stamens shorter than corolla lobes; filaments usually stout, ± subulate and often shorter than (sometimes ± as long as) broadly elliptic to suborbicular anthers. Scales oblong, shorter than tube, bifid or bilobed to entire, variously fimbriate. Ovary globose; styles shorter than ovary, intrastylar aperture 1.0-1.5 mm long. Capsule globose or somewhat obovoid, not dehiscent by circumscission, drying reddish brown. Seeds ellipsoid to ovoid, 1.25-2.0 mm long.
