Taraxacum pectinatum / Kushibatanpopo クシバタンポポ

Taraxacum pectinatum is different from T. arakii, both being native to 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, they are not. Some researcher says they are the same, and Shimane Red Data Book lists this as a VU. Bloom time: April-May.
