Biennial or perennial herbs. Leaves 2-ternate or 2-pinnate (often irregularly so). Umbels compound. Bracts 0-few, bracteoles few to several. Calyx teeth minute or 0; petals yellow to greenish-white. Fruit broadly
elliptic to pear-shaped, very strongly flattened dorsiventrally, with a broad commissure. Lateral wings well-developed and
surrounding the well-developed conic stylopodium at the apex.
Some doubt exists as to how many species of Lefebvrea occur in Zimbabwe and Mozambique and what their names are.
