11 in number, 18-20 x 12-15 mm (excluding the petals), 3 to 4-flowered, flabellate to subpulvinate, densely disposed; floral bracts broadly triangular to triangular-ovate, acute and apiculate, submembranaceous toward the base and margins, greenish, abaxially densely and coarsely white-lepidote toward apex and margins, trichomes with lacerate-fimbriate margins, adaxially glabrous, distinctly shorter than the sepals, entire to remotely spinulose, carinate, cymbiform, 9-11 x 8-12 mm.
17-flowered, stipe inconspicuous, without sterile bracts; floral bracts suborbicular, 32-35 x 30-32 mm, apex obtuse, yellow except for the apex turning blackish during anthesis, nerved, inconspicuously and sparsely castaneous lepidote inside, glabrous outside, almost completely enfolding the sepals and equaling 3/4 of its length, cymbiform and convex, ecarinate or the basal ones sometimes obtusely carinate.
