Author's notes

This was about 4 m from the ones in the lawn, and much bigger. It has buds and seeds, but no actual flowers.

Well, they look close enough to the Bega dandelions that I'd be more than happy to call them all the same thing. One problem I had with sarcidanum was I think it said scapes to about 10cm long, and Bega plants are frequently a good bit taller than that, similar to your one.
