Inflorescence: heads generally radiate, occasionally obscurely so (discoid), in flat-topped or panicle-, raceme-, or spike-like clusters; involucre 1--10+ mm diam, generally +- spheric to ovoid or urn-shaped; phyllaries in 1 series, lance-linear to oblanceolate, each mostly or wholly enfolding a subtended ray ovary, falling with fruit, coarse-hairy, generally glandular; receptacle flat to convex, glabrous or minutely bristly; paleae in 1 series between ray and disk flowers, +- fused or free, phyllary-like but more scarious, generally persistent (falling readily in Madia radiata). Ray Flower: (0)1--22; corolla generally +- yellow, ray sometimes maroon or +- purple adaxially, proximally, or throughout. Disk Flower: ; Fruit: ray fruit generally compressed side-to-side, generally +- 3-angled (rarely cylindric), +- club-shaped, often arched, glabrous, tip occasionally beaked, pappus 0; disk fruit 0 or similar to ray fruit, sometimes obovoid, often +- straight, tip not beaked, pappus 0.
