Taraxacum dilaceratum M.P.Christ. “Lacerate-leaved Dandelion”
Probably introduced. Scattered through England and Wales, with a marked preference for the south-west. There are only two Scottish records. Grasslands, verges, waste ground, pavements.
T. dilaceratum has a green, winged petiole and broad, spreading sigmoid exterior bracts typical of the Alata group. It is distinguished from its closest relative, T. densilobum, by strikingly double-lobed side-lobes and broader exterior bracts.
