Foster noted cengialtii has yellow-green leaves. While cengialti tends to be a dwarfer relative of pallida, Dykes distinguished this from pallida by the color of the papery bracts; brown in cengialti, silvery in pallida. Also the seeds of cengialtii are grayish almost spherical while pallida has dark red-brown compressed seeds.
