Odor suggests minutum though distinctive. Scattered large trichomes like Galapagos pimpinellifolium. Anthocyanin strong on upper stems. Habit dense, bushy, slender stems, 4-5" internodes. Alternation: 3,3,2; 2,2,3; 2,2,3; 2,2,2; 2,3,1,2; 2,2,2,3,2; 2,3,2. (Different plants possibly = ?). Leaves small with 5-7 segments, few foliolules when 7 vs ? = small; dark green, upper surface glossy; pseudostipules not present, though variable; flat to moderately plicate; terminal segment is very large in proportion; lanceolate (L=2.5 x W), shallowly cren-dentate. Inflorescence: approximatly 1/2 = 1st order, 1/2 = 2nd order branching; bracts at base, divided and subtending pedicels; ? 70% position. Flowers: corolla strongly recurved, anther tubes straight, 8 cm; styles straight, stigmas exserted 1 mm; calyx small, 4-5 mm, membranous; corolla segments narrow, 10-12 mm long. Fruit: setting fruit rather abundantly; calyces develop very rapidly after fruit set, clasps completely around fruit, later spreading; green shoulder, slight green line; becoming slightly yellowish at ripening.
