Annuals, (1-) 5-40 cm. Stems  1, ± erect, or 2-7[-10+], ± ascending [prostrate]. Leaves cauline [basal]; alternate; blades lanceolate to oblanceolate [spatulate or ± round]. Heads in (dense, spheric [hemispheric]) glomerules of [2-]8-35+ in ± dichasiiform arrays [borne singly]. Involucres 0 or inconspicuous. Phyllaries usually 0, rarely 1-4, unequal (similar to paleae). Receptacles cylindric to clavate (heights [2-]5-15 times diams.), glabrous. Pistillate paleae (except usually innermost) ± persistent [falling], ± erect to ascending; bodies with 5+ nerves (nerves ± parallel, obscure), lanceolate to ovate, open to ± folded (each at most enfolding, not enclosing a floret) ; wings erect to recurved (apices acuminate to aristate). Innermost paleae usually all pistillate, in some species bisexual and pistillate, persistent or tardily falling, usually 5, erect to ascending [spreading] (scarcely enlarged) in fruit, shorter than other pistillate paleae; bodies lanceolate to ovate. Pistillate florets [12-]27-40+. Functionally staminate florets 0. Bisexual florets (1-) 2-9(-11) ; corolla lobes 4, ± equal. Cypselae brown, ± monomorphic: terete to ± compressed, cylindric to ± obovoid, usually straight, not gibbous, faces papillate to muricate [glabrous, smooth], dull; corolla scars apical [subapical]; pappi: outer pistillate 0, inner pistillate and bisexual of [3-]13-21 bristles (visible in heads). x = 14.

The Antarctic Cudweed (Gamochaeta antarctica) is a species of flowering plant in the Asteraceae family. It is monotypic within the genus Gamochaeta. It is found only in Falkland Islands. Its natural habitat is temperate shrubland. It is threatened by habitat loss. [more]
Gnaphalium, commonly called Cudweed, is a genus of plants belonging to the family Asteraceae. There are about 120 members of the genus mostly found in temperate regions although some are found on tropical mountains or in the sub-tropical regions of the world. [more]
The genus Helichrysum () consists of an estimated 600 species, in the sunflower family (Asteraceae). The type species is Helichrysum orientale. The name is derived from the Greek words helisso (to turn around) and chrysos (gold). [more]
Helipterum is a genus of flowering plants in the family Asteraceae. Many of the species which were formerly included in this genus have now been transferred to other genera including: [more]
Lasiopogon is a genus of in the Asteraceae family. It contains the following species: [more]
Leontopodium is a genus of plants in the daisy family, which includes edelweiss (Leontopodium alpinum), a well-known plant from the mountains of Europe. The term edelweiss can, more rarely, refer to other members of the genus. The genus contains about 30 species, native to Europe and Asia (and perhaps the Americas). [more]
Annuals, 1-50(-70) cm. Stems 1, erect, or 2-10+, ascending to prostrate. Leaves cauline; alternate; blades subulate to obovate. Heads usually in glomerules of 2-10(-14) in racemiform to paniculiform or dichasiiform arrays, or some [all] borne singly. Involucres 0 or inconspicuous. Phyllaries 0, vestigial, 1-4 (unequal), or 4-6 (equal). Receptacles fungiform to obovoid (heights 0.4-1.6 times diams.), glabrous. Pistillate paleae (except usually innermost) readily or tardily falling, erect to ascending; bodies with 5+ nerves (nerves ± parallel, obscure), lanceolate to ovate or boat-shaped, ± saccate most of lengths (obcompressed to terete, sometimes ± galeate, each ± enclosing a floret) ; wings erect to incurved (apices blunt). Innermost paleae usually all pistillate, in some species bisexual and pistillate, persistent, usually 5 or 8, spreading (and enlarged) in fruit, surpassing other pistillate paleae; bodies lanceolate to ovate. Pistillate florets 14-45+. Functionally staminate florets 0. Bisexual florets 2-10; corolla lobes 4-5, ± equal. Cypselae brown, dimorphic: outer compressed to obcompressed, obovoid to ± cylindric, straight or curved, longer than inner, abaxially gibbous, faces glabrous, smooth, shiny; inner ± terete, faces glabrous, usually papillate to muriculate, sometimes smooth, dull; corolla scars apical to subapical; pappi: outer pistillate 0, inner pistillate and bisexual of (11-) 13-28+ bristles (visible in heads). . = 14. [more]
Perennials, 2-70 cm (fibrous-rooted, rhizomatous, not stoloniferous). Stems usually 1, erect (branched from bases or distally, woolly-tomentose to sericeous). Leaves basal (persistent in rosettes) and cauline; alternate; sessile; blades mostly narrowly lanceolate to oblanceolate, bases cuneate, margins entire, faces bicolor or concolor, abaxial white to gray, thinly tomentose, adaxial white to grayish and sericeous to thinly woolly or greenish and glabrate. Heads disciform, in spiciform or subcapitate arrays. Involucres campanulate to turbinate, 5-6 mm. Phyllaries in 2-3 series, stramineous to brownish (sometimes mottled; hyaline, stereomes not glandular), unequal, chartaceous toward apices. Receptacles flat to concave, smooth, epaleate. Peripheral (pistillate) florets 35-70+ (more numerous than bisexual) ; corollas purplish or whitish. Inner (bisexual) florets 3-4; corollas purplish or whitish, distally purplish or reddish. Cypselae obovoid to cylindric or fusiform, sometimes slightly compressed, faces strigillose (hairs not myxogenic, lengths 6-12 times diams.) and papillate (carpopodia forming minute stipes) ; pappi falling readily, of 15-25 distinct (falling separately) or basally connate (falling together), barbellate bristles in 1 series. x = 14.
