Thanks

I call every Reichardia I see in Malta: Reichardia picroides. I have no idea how to identify intermedia from picroides, even though many authors described both as occurring. In Malta picroides is very common everywhere and I mean everywhere!

Thank you il-Pine. I checked MWP and could not find any difference between intermedia and picroides. So, I do it like you and call it picroides.

If the involucral bracts are 4mm long and 2 mm wide with a transparent margin not more than half a mm, it is R. picroides while if the bracts are more than 4mm and 2mm respectivelyand the margin up about 1 mm membranous, than its R. intermedia. From the little I see in the 3rd pic, I think its R. picroides
