Annuals of less graceful habit than those in the last genus, but almost identical in floral characters, the main difference being in the achenes, which terminate in a slender beak bearing the pappus. Involucral bracts all coloured, gradually passing from small sessile outer ones to those with a slender claw and large limb. There are about six species, all from Australia. This genus was named in honour of a German botanist.

1. W. corymbosa, syn. W. acuminata. - An erect and branching plant clothed with a rough pubescence. Leaves linear, with revolute margins clasping the stem. Flower-heads yellow or pink, in dense terminal corymbs. Involucral bracts with long acuminate points, usually with a few straggling ones below the head. Terminal beak much longer than the achene.

2. W. aurea, syn. Morna nitida. - Very near the last, with less pointed bracts of a golden yellow, and the flower-heads in a looser corymb.

W. Steetziana, syn. W. tenella, is a dwarfer plant with smaller flower-heads from pure white to a bright yellow; and W. nivea is very near No. 2, differing however in having comparatively longer florets and white or pink bracts.
