Cylindrical fruits, ridged, 2 styles, up to 6mm across.
The basal leaves are pinnate with 3 to 4 leaflets. They are broadly oval in shape and toothed. The stem leaves have 2 to 3 leaflets and are not as broad as the basal leaflets. The stems themselves are hollow. In my personal opinion, the leaflets look a little similar to parsley.
