Styles short and rather thick, up to 1 mm. long and 0.3 mm. broad, often reflexed.
Capsule depressed-globose, at length splitting around the base.
Stamens half as long as the lobes; filaments short and thick.
Scales nearly always present, rather thick, reaching to the base of the stamens and adnate to the corolla-tube over a large triangular area; sinuses occurring at the base or about halfway up the tube; fringing variable in amount.
Calyx-lobes broadly obtuse, adpressed to the corolla-tube in living material but not adhering to the corolla and rather spreading when dry.
Corolla 4–6 mm. long; lobes shorter than the tube, obtuse.
Stems rather coarse, 0.25–1.5 mm. in diameter.
Flowers pale cream-coloured, waxy in texture, 4–6 mm. long and 4–9 mm. broad, usually broader than long and becoming more depressed as the capsule matures, arranged in few-flowered cymes; pedicels shorter than the flowers.
Seeds subglobose, pale yellow-brown or blackish when dry, 1.5–2 mm. long.
Stems of medium thickness to rather stout, yellowish to orange. Flowers 4-6 mm long, wide, pale cream-coloured, in few-flowered cymes on pedicels shorter than flowers, somewhat coriaceous when dried. Calyx cupulate; lobes ovate-orbicular, obtuse, overlapping at base, rather thick and often ± carinate. Corolla campanulate-cylindric; tube longer than ovate-orbicular, obtuse to rounded and often somewhat revolute lobes. Stamens shorter than corolla lobes; filaments ± as long as anthers. Scales triangular or oblong, apex often truncate, edge irregularly and unevenly fringed to almost entire, usually reaching bases of stamens, but sometimes smaller or reduced. Ovary globose; stigmas shorter than ovary, often flattened with convolute edges. Capsule globose, intrastylar aperture large, irregularly circumscissile near base. Seeds 2-4, ovoid, 1.5-3.0 mm long, somewhat attenuate at base, pale yellow-brown or blackish when dry; hilum oblong.
