Identifying Vexators - Vexatorella
The genus Vexatorella can most easily be mistaken for a Leucospermum (section Diastelloides), from which it can easily be distinguished by its terminal inflorescences, which may be grouped into a panicle. The leaves always have a single callus on the tip. The four perianth segments separate symmetrically and are only fused in the tube region. Flowers are sweetly scented. The floral bracts become lignified after flowering, a feature shared with L. secundifolium. The fruits have a persistent style, and are hairless with an elaiosome surrounding the fruit and forming a little stalk.
