Diagnostic
As for Dicoma sessiliflora except that the stems are more uniformly leafy, the lower-stem leaves are never clustered and decrease somewhat in size and number towards the stem base. The leaves differ in being mostly 8–16 x 0.8–1.5(2.5) cm., linear-elliptic or narrowly elliptic, widest about the middle or ± parallel-sided; apex tapering acute; base narrowly cuneate tapering to a petiole-like hardly stem-clasping base; margins sparsely serrulate, revolute.

Native to:

Malawi, Mozambique, Zambia, Zaïre
