The Anthemideae are a tribe of composite-flowered plants including such plants as chamomiles, yarrow, tansies and chrysanthemums. In members of the subtribe Anthemidinae, the receptacle bears chaffy scales whereas in the Chrysanthemidinae, the receptacle is naked. Anthemidinae include the genera Achillea, with compressed achenes and almost orbicular ligules, and Anthemis, with little compressed achenes and oblong ligules. Within the Chrysantheminae, members of the genus Matricaria bear heterogamous-radiate flower heads with a conical receptacle (Black & Robertson 1965).

Characters (from Black & Robertson 1965): Involucral bracts with scarious margins; heads heterogamous-radiate, or heterogamous-discoid with female flowers tubular; receptacle naked or chaffy; style-branches of fertile bisexual flowers always truncate with tuft of collecting hairs at summit; pappus absent or rarely of scales or bristles or small crown; leaves alternate.
