Leaves fleshy, distinctly ribbed on the outside. Apex of mid-lobe of column (yellow part) somewhat dorsally compressed with a V-notch. Lateral lobes of column with a terminal tuft of white hairs, extending horizontally and converging. More than 5 flowers per stem (I can count 7 or 8 including the buds).

  3. David Francis  Thanks, Chris. It keys out to peniculata (Jeanes;Muelleria 19: 19–79 (2004) if I guess that the leaf is <75% of the inflorescence. (leaves are cut off and inflorescence not fully extended).
