Shrubs with erect, rarely decumbent or prostrate, branches to 0.6 m long. Vestiture of stems of forward-directed simple, tubercle-based hairs. Leaves oblong-elliptic, 1.5–6.5 mm long, 0.5–1.1 mm wide, shortly puberulous or with scattered tubercle-based hairs or simply tubercles; petiole 0.2–0.5 mm long; apex acute, usually decurved, glabrous or a short terminal tuft of hairs on projecting central ridge; margins narrow, revolute, usually raised above the midrib on lower surface, often the lower lamina quite obscured (at least on drying), but sometimes apparent. Flowers sessile, terminal on long and short shoots, subtended by 1(–3) lanceolate to spathulate bracts c. 1 mm long; sepals 3.3–6.1 mm long, unequal, glabrous or almost so; petals obovate, 3.8–8.4 mm long, yellow; stamens 12–24; filaments mostly free; carpels 3, villous.
