A hybrid between S. daltonii and S. parvifolium.

Differs from S. daltonii in having larger, relatively broader leaves, 10–25 mm long, 2–7 mm wide, obtuse to acute (but not sharp-pointed), with margins less strongly revolute, sometimes undulate, upper surfaces with impressed lateral veins (those of floral leaves often sparsely pubescent), lower surface (and other indumented surfaces, e.g. stems, calyces) with more numerous, silky, often rusty, simple hairs. Flowering habit resembling that of S. daltonii, but bracts broader and flowers paler, often more densely clustered. Mericarps (on the few immature and/or aborted fruits seen) smooth on inner face Flowers Aug.–Oct.
