Stems 30–50 cm tall, erect, slender; lowermost internode not abbreviated, greenish or pinkish, subglabrous; with very rare simple hairs 1–1.5 mm long below, with rare glandular hairs 0.2–0.3 mm and sparse stellate hairs under the inflorescence. Creepingstolons absent or slender. Leaves yellowish-green with a glaucous tint, basal in a rosette; rosulate 6–12 × 0.5–0.8 cm, linear to linear-spatulate, acute, long and gradually narrowed towards the base, entire or with a few spiculiform teeth; cauline 2–4 (uppermost reduced), like the basal but smaller and less narrowed to the base; all glabrous above, with some rigid simple hairs along the middle nerve and the base margin, without stellate hairs beneath. Inflorescence corymbiform, compact or with supplementary branches, with 4–20 capitula; branches very slender, with none to solitary (very rare) glandular hairs 0.2–0.3 mm long and a lax stellate indumentum. Involucralbracts inner 4.5–5 × 0.6–0.8 mm, olive-green with paler glabrous margins, thin acute at the apex, with (none) solitary (very rare) thin dark simple hairs 1–2 mm long, rare to sparse thin black glandular hairs 0.2–0.5 mm long and a lax stellate indumentum throughout. Flowers ca. 6 mm long; ligules pale yellow, sometimes pink-striped outside, teeth greenish at the apices. Styles purely yellow. Achenes ca. 1.8 mm long.
