Ladakh, August 2022 :: Taraxacum candidatum :: ARK2022-158: 5 high res. images.

This was at a small meadow just before Pangong tso. I think this is Taraxacum candidatum.
Marmots were in abundance here and it was a ‘masst spot’ ‘for a ‘must stop’ en route Pangong tso.
Requested to please validate.

Correct ID according to efi.
