Taraxacum pectinatum / Kushibatanpopo クシバタンポポ

 
Taraxacum pectinatum is different from T. arakii, both being native of Japan, though. They closely resemble one another. One of the most significant differences lies in the shape of leaves; with T. pectinatum, leaves are deeply split like comb teeth, while with the other, not. Some researcher says they are the same, and Shimane Red Data Book lists this as a VU. Bloom time: April-May.
