Close-up from above, a flowerhead of Foveolina dichotoma shows only its disc florets. The snake-like peduncle is longitudinally grooved, unlike snakes.
The receptacle at the base of the flowerhead is flat. Three to four uneven rows of narrow involucral bracts are spread flat at the back, the inner ones or most of them reaching the perimeter of the flowerhead. The pale green bracts have rough surfaces and membranous margins.
The closed buds are erect, columnar and densely together in the flowerhead centres in the photo. The outer, broad ring of open florets has their usually four (sometimes maybe five) tiny, pointed lobes spreading for the benefit of lightweight pollinators needing to access anthers and stigmas (Le Roux, et al, 2005; iNaturalist).
