It is apparently similar to C. badamica in habitat ecology and general morphology, but strictly differs in features like presence of 2-3 nerved ligule, lower cincinnus with single bisexual flower, ovary glabrous, anthers-elliptic and seeds ovoid-oblong or trapezoidal. In addition to description, habitat ecology, details on population distribution and the conservation status are also provided for the new variety.
