Description:

Next to car park on the Shelter River. Metre high plant. At the time I did not know about the lower bracts (calyculus) which maybe why the name. Otherwise typical uniseriate involucral bracts. The inflorescence is compound combrose. So it is in senecioneae. 3 Leafy stems, slightly cobwebby,, margins finely toothed and clasps at the bottom. Bracts mabe thinly woolly. It was observed in the flowering season. Close enough match for Pooley:KZN p322 for me.
