Identification remarks I agonised over this one for quite a while, as it is not identical to my photos of S. pterophorus (introduced, just appeared in our region in the last few years), but that may be because you have only photographed the upper stem leaves. Those on the lower stem should be quite deeply lobed, which is not the case for S. linearifolius. The flowers are showier on S. pterophorus with more and longer yellow ligules and your flowers look a bit in-betweenish, but the clincher I think is the white underside of the leaves, which is typical of pterophorus. The upper leaf surface in it is also glossier than that of linearifolius.
