Diagnostic Description

Eine sehr charakteristische Art, die wohl am besten neben H. scabra E. et Z. untergebracht wird, sich aber von ihr sowohl wie von den ubrigen naheren Verwandten durch das Vorhandensein der sitzenden Harzdrusen unterscheidet, die fast anhalien Teilen der Pflanzen zu finden sind. [A very characteristic species, which is best placed next to H. scabra E. et. Z., Differs from it, as well as from the other near relatives, by the presence of sedentary resinous districts, which are almost all parts of the plants].
