Bristly Hawksbeard, Bristly Hawk´s-Beard, Bristly Hawk's-Beard, Rough Hawksbeard
The largest family of flowering plants , the Compositae (Asteraceae), comprising about 1,100 genera and more than 20,000 species and characterized by many small flowers arranged in a head looking like a single flower and subtended by an involucre of bracts. A head may consist of both ray flowers and disk flowers, as in the sunflower, of disk flowers only, as in the burdock, or of ray flowers only, as in the dandelion.
The Lactuceae are a tribe of closely related genera of the sunflower family that are easily recognized because the flowering heads are composed of wholly of ligulate florets that are usually 5-lobed. Another very distinguishing feature is the milky sap . Although not apparent without magnification, the pollen is distinctive in that the spines are more or less restricted to discrete ridges or flanges on the surface of the grain. In other members of the family the spines are distributed more or less evenly over the surface of the pollen grain . The pappus usually consists of scales or stiff hairs . -- Gerald D. Carr.

Species ca. 200: North America, Eurasia , Africa; introduced nearly worldwide.
Crepis is generally recognized by the rosettes of coarse, often pinnately lobed leaves, erect heads, epaleate receptacles, calyculate involucres. yellow corollas, subcylindric or fusiform, ribbed cypselae, and pappi of barbellulate bristles. The taxonomy and evolutionary relationships of Crepis were studied by E. B . Babcock (1947) and his associates. Their work was thorough and important because of the effort to incorporate cytogenetic information in the evolutionary analysis. Extensive survey of chromosome number and karyotype indicated two major ploidy groups in Crepis, corresponding to New World and Old World species complexes. Of the 12 species of Crepis native to North America, 10 are polyploids with x = 11. The core diploid populations commonly occupy discrete ecologic zones and are thought to be entirely distinct from one another, yet they are interconnected by a continuous complex series of intergrading polyploid forms that are partly or completely apomictic (Babcock). The polyploids are of two forms, autopolyploids that are similar to the diploids, and allopolyploids that combine the characteristics of two or more diploid species. The allopolyploid forms of hybrid origin may exhibit the characteristics of multiple parental species and therefore are difficult to classify. Some of the heterogeneous apomictic populations, or groups of populations, have been grouped together and recognized as subspecies ; those taxa are often difficult to identify and further study is clearly needed. Despite these difficulties, the subspecific taxa of Babcock were tentatively included in the present study. The Old World species are mostly diploid (n = 3, 4, 5, or 6). Babcock concluded that there was a progressive decrease in the chromosome numbers, from n = 6 to n = 3. Along with the decrease is a corresponding increase in chromosome asymmetry and reduction in chromosome length.
Species Crepis setosa

shallow). Stems 1, erect
(often reddish), stout (fistulose), simple
or branched proximally,
(at least distally, setae yellowish). Leaves

or lyrate, 5-30 × 1-8 cm, margins
to pinnately lobed

; cauline leaves

, margins dentate
to deeply laciniate

or cymiform arrays. Calyculi of 10-14, linear

faces coarsely setose or hispid, adaxial

Florets 10-20; corollas yellow, sometimes reddish abaxially,
8-10 mm. Cypselae reddish brown, fusiform
, 3-5 mm, beaked
1-2 mm), ribs

; pappi white (fine, soft), 4 mm. 2n = 8. [source]
Crepis setosa is recognized by its annual habit, shallow roots , coarsely setose stems, leaves, and involucres, the relatively large runcinate leaves, sagittate-laciniate cauline leaves, finely beaked cypselae, and white, fine pappus bristles . [source]
