Taraxacum pallidipes Markl. “Grey-bracted Dandelion”
Probably native. Distributed through most of England and Wales, but scarce in the Midlands and East Anglia and absent from most of Scotland. Waste places, gardens, verges, hedge-banks. Recorded more frequently in recent years.
T. pallidipes is an erect and quite tall species with narrowly winged whitish petioles. Like several other Croceiflora-group species it is rather characterless, but the more or less homophyllous large helmet-shaped end-lobes and the long, narrow, pale, and strongly recurved exterior bracts are further guides.
