Discussion:

In the protologue of var. interior I stressed as apparent differences from var. pseudo-obovata the leaf-formula, the apparently dissimilar ecology, and the axillary rather than pseudoracemose or paniculate capitula. On reflection I think it likely that the inflorescence character may be fortuitous, and the others need testing against further collections.
