with a prominent dome-shaped apex, the margin densely and obscurely short-ciliate (may be hidden), the stalk of the bract villous. Fruits cushion-shaped, very bluntly trigonous, borne on a slender, +/- flattened stalk at maturity, obscured by bracts until maturity; styles 3, moderately long, slender, their thick bases persisting. Croat 4591, 6501. Easily confused with P. carrilloanum, but that species is densely puberulent on the veins. Yuncker (1950) was perhaps referring to the persistent style bases when he called the stigmas sessile.
