Description:Variety Description - Habit and foliage of var. paucipinna, but the massive capitula 15-16 mm in diam. without filaments and the bracts 5-6 mm, the corollas 5.5-6 mm; pod unknown.

Distribution and Ecology - In cerrado, 875-900 m, known only from Sa. do Fação near 17°45'S, in s.-e. Goiás, Brazil.— Fl. I—II.


The massive capitula of var. grossiceps suggest those of M. claussenii var. prorsiseta, but the almost scapiform inflorescence, at anthesis leafless beyond the first few nodes, conforms with M. albolanata sensu lato. The pod will be decisive in evaluating the degree of kinship one way or another.
