Another Asteraceae, we would like to know the name please


Sonchus oleraceus L. ??

Thanks, …, for the initial id.
Sonchus asper is more likely (if found there) rather than Sonchus oleraceus

OK …!

May be some other species as it does not have distribution in the area as per

It could be other sp. also but S. oleraceous looks like ntroduced as mentioned in some google
links and this enclosed link.Gagatang, Sonchus oleraceus Linn., SOW THISTLE …stuartxchange.com › Gagatang
By the way S. wighitianus and S. afrvensis is found listed but does not look matching.

basal auricles look rounded, S. asper


Difference between S. asper and S. oleraceus can be viewed at FoC – http://www.efloras.org/florataxon.aspx?flora_id=2&taxon_id=130683#KEY-1-2

As per POWO, Sochus oleraceus is introduced in JAWA (Java, I think). – plantsoftheworldonline
