Krigia (small, yellow dandelion-like flowers) ID guide--in progress

I've started working on an ID guide for Texas Krigia. It's a work in progress as I'm not sure about some of the supposedly identifying characteristics in the literature. I need good pics and some opinions from other people.

Krigia are small, yellow dandelion-like flowers that bloom and fruit during late March-April in Texas.

Must have photos of:

  • Entire plant, showing where flowering stems emerge from (the base or a branch)
  • Fruiting head: viewed from top, side, and bottom
  • Fruit (may need to dissect if it's not open)
