    Habit

    Erect annual or perennial herb, 30–40 cm tall. Flowering in August.

    Key characteristics

    Very similar to S. trinominum and S. coquimbense which all have unequal lengthed stamens. However, the long, narrow, stalkless leaves of S. indivisum have margins which are weakly dentate or subentire - these are strongly lobed in S. trinominum and S. coquimbense.

    Regions

    Valparaíso

    Distribution and habitat

    Only known from three herbarium sheets collected in the 19th century from Concón - an area which today has become highly urbanised hence there is a strong possibility, that this species could now be extinct!
