The staminate inflorescence is a pleiochasium with 5-6 flowers (see Figure 1B-C) and four bracteoles. The flowers are pedicellate and monochlamydeous with six yellow-greenish tepals, an androphore and numerous stamens (see Figure 1D).
Inflorescences simple, without vegetative leaves, borne near base of younger stems in axils of deciduous earliest leaves, mostly single but occasionally in pairs, 3.5-10 cm long, containing 6-18 flowers with the flowers decussate or distally in no consistent order, the axes densely and persistently appressed-tomentose or the pedicel glabrescent late in maturation of fruit; bracts 2-2.5 mm long, broadly ovate, abaxially sericeous or distally glabrescent, adaxially glabrous, eglandular; peduncle 0-2.5 mm long in fruit; bracteoles like bracts but smaller, 1-1.5 mm long, one of the pair sometimes bearing a large abaxial gland; pedicel 4.5-6 mm long in fruit.
