Wiry perennial herb, to c. 0.15 m tall and to c. 0.5 m long, with taproot, decumbent (or rarely erect) to prostrate and rooting, not markedly mat-forming; branches from below inflorescence, lateral and basal, ascending or divaricate. Stems green, 4-lined, ancipitous and densely gland-dotted when young, eventually subterete, cortex sometimes exfoliating in strips; internodes 2.5-12 mm long. Leaves sessile to very shortly pseudopetiolate, spreading, longer to shorter than internodes, persistent; lamina 3-9 x 0.5-3.5 mm, oblanceolate to oblong-spathulate, margin recurved to revolute, entire, not cucullate, midrib slightly prominent beneath, paler and glaucous beneath, subcoriaceous (?) to chartaceous; apex subapiculate-obtuse to rounded, base narrowly cuneate to angustate, free; basal vein 1, sometimes with 2-3 pairs of lateral branches; laminar glands dense, prominent beneath. Inflorescence 1-5-flowered, pseudo-dichotomous to sympodial and rarely dichasial/monochasial, without subsidiary branches; peduncle and pedicels 2-6 mm long, not incrassate upwards; bracts foliaceous, not reduced, bracteoles subulate. Flowers 3-7 mm in diam., stellate to infundibuliform? Sepals 2.5-4.3 x 0.5-2 mm, unequal, narrowly oblong or oblanceolate to oblanceolate-spathulate, obtuse or apiculate to rounded, veins 3-5, unbranched, becoming prominent; glands linear, punctiform in distal 3/5. Petals bright (?) yellow, 2.5-3(-4) x 0.8-l(-l.5) mm, about equalling sepals, oblanceolate; apiculus obsolete; glands distal, punctiform. Stamens 10-15, longest 1.5-2 mm long, c. 0.6 x petals, irregularly grouped? Ovary c. I x 0.5-0.8 mm, exceeding sepals; 2.5-3.5(- 4.5) x l.5-2(-2.5) mm, cylindric-ellipsoid to subglobose, obtuse, exceeding sepals. Seeds 0.5 mm long, ecarinate; testa finely scalariform.
