Tanay
Not Taraxacum which has single flower on a scape. This should be a species of Crepis. Alok ji, exact flower size should help in identification.

Thanks sir,
I can give you all details except flower dia right now, since the sun
did not shine and the flower did not open.... but the flower size is
almost the same as the dandelion (which is the next id)... I think...

Alok

Just give me the diameter of head, not length, and also if there are some fruits, each will have three portions: lower thicker body, narrowed neck and hairy crown. Give me length of each if possible.

I would go with Crepis foetida

Launaea won't have such leaves.

"Flora of China" must be wrong when it says, "Capitula with 10-20 florets!"
