  • notes   Detail of a senescent plant of Uropappus lindleyi, with fruiting heads and pappus.

    Note the relatively-long scale body and much shorter terminal bristle (= 'arista'). The arista is attached at the sinus of the (somewhat minutely) bifid tip of the pappus scale, and the pappus scale is silvery-white and without inrolled lateral margins. (The proceeding characters distinguish the pappus of Uropappus from that of Microseris.)
