     Plants biennials, without evident caudices, lacking crowded, persistent leaf bases; sexual, with ellipsoid pollen. Stems usually 1 per plant, arising near ground level from center of basal rosettes, 2.0–7.5 dm, lower parts with few simple trichomes to 0.5 mm, or glabrous throughout. Leaves at stem bases oblanceolate, 5–18 mm wide, lyrate-pinnatifid, often minutely ciliate-mucronate on lobes, blade surfaces glabrous or sparsely pubescent with simple trichomes 0.1–0.5 mm; cauline leaves 10–45, often concealing stem proximally, glabrous with auricles 1–5 mm. Inflorescences occasionally branched, 18–47-flowered; fruiting pedicels 5–13 mm, suberect to divaricate-ascending, straight or slightly curved, glabrous. Flowers ascending at anthesis; sepals glabrous; petals white, 5–10 ´ 1.0–1.5 mm, glabrous; ovules 60–86 per fruit. Fruits 6–11 cm ´ 1.5–2.0 mm, ascending to divaricate-ascending, not appressed to rachises, not secund, curved, with parallel edges, glabrous; style 0.1–1.0 mm. Seeds uniseriate, 1.2–2.0 ´ 1.0–1.2 mm; wing continuous, 0.1–0.4 mm wide.
