Tyrimnus leucographus is the only member of the genus Tyrimnus. The flower head is composed of crowded purple florets surrounded by overlapping, spineless phylliaries (bracts which surround the head resembling the sepals of a single regular flower ). The stem branches just above leaves; the lower portions are winged but long upper portions smooth and droop as the flower heads open. The leaves, which surround the lower stem are thistle-like, deeply toothed with a sharp spine at the tip of each tooth. The veins are marked in white,the possible origin of species name, leucographus meaning white writing. The whole plant is covered in cobweb-like hairs.
