Ainsliaea acerifolia var. subapod, a perennial herb with a 30-60cm tall stem with sparse long hairs, occurs in the shade of a tree in mountainous regions. Leaves, 4-7, attach the middle part of the stems in a somewhat whorl way, with long, 5-13cm long peduncles with vellus hairs, in a circular-cordate shape, 6-12cm long, 6-18cm wide, shallowly palmately cleft, thin texture, serrations on margins, sparse tender hairs on both surfaces.
