Erect shrubs; stems felted to floccose. Leaves linear to narrowly oblong-elliptic or rarely narrowly obovate, (20–)35–70(–120) mm long, 1.5–4(–7) mm wide, obtuse-apiculate or subacute, upper surface c. convex, with conspicuous, uniformly and c. densely distributed, robust subtriangular protuberances, midvein channelled above, indistinct below (usually obscured by indumentum), margins recurved to shortly revolute; petiole 2–4 mm long. Inflorescence 60–260 mm long, axes closely to loosely floccose, sometimes glabrescent; bracts linear to filamentous, 3.5–4.5(–6) mm long. Pedicels 3–8 mm long (–10 mm in female phase); petals 2.4–3 mm long, those of terminal (primary) and lateral (secondary) umbels concolorous, white to cream (rarely with purple tips and bases); anthers 1.5–1.8 mm long. Fruit 2.5–4.5 mm long, 2.5–3.5 mm wide, not locellate.
This species has commonly been identified as A. asperifolia; the latter differs in having flatter leaves with the asperities of the upper surface much less pronounced, and the terminal (primary) umbel discolorous relative to the other umbels of the inflorescence.
