N Somalia, without precise locality, Révoil 64 (P holo.).
Morphology General Habit
Woody herb or small shrub 15–60 cm high, sometimes procumbent; branches tomentellous
Morphology Leaves
Leaves obovate to spatulate, 15–22´8–11 mm, base long-attenuate but the very base widened, margins dentate to slightly lobed, apex mucronate, lanate to white-tomentellous
Morphology Reproductive morphology Inflorescences
Capitula terminal and solitary, on stalks 1–6 cm long; involucre 3.5–5 mm high; phyllaries lanceolate, apiculate, the outer pubescent
Morphology Reproductive morphology Flowers Corolla
Corolla yellow; ray florets absent or present and 4.5–7 mm long, of which the ray 3–5 mm; disk florets 3.7–5 mm long

Plants with ray florets have been called var. oligophylla Gamal-Eldin in Arabia. As rays may be present or absent also in Somalia, and without any associated characters, this should probably come into synonymy.
