  • 1b. Arachnoid hairs not present on vegetative organs (though other types of hairs may be present); capsule with 10–36 seeds
    • 2a. Corolla ca. 2–3 times as long as calyx, the adaxial surface of connate portion (i.e., inside the basal tube) yellow with purple spots; axis of inflorescence with minute, black stipitate glands; capsule with 16–36 seeds
