Yes Saroj ji
It has an interesting story. The plant is very common around Kashmir University Campus. Way back in 1968, a few days before the exams we were given a survey of plants flowering around that time (March beginning). This plant was displayed as Sonchus, so this is how we remembered it and incidentally it came in our university exam. where we were supposed to describe it and then identify genus using FBI. I described it from the plant recording absence of ray florets, but when it came to identifying genus I was confuse and simply  wrote Sonchus. But it was on my mind when I joined research and noticed that this plant is Senecio vulgaris which had never been reported from Kashmir. and I published it as new record for Kashmir in 1970. I am sharing the pdf

They phoros are good for S. vulgaris. Note that it can hybridise with various other members of the genus - I've seen what appear to be hybrids with S. vernalis (given only S. vernalis was around with it). Generally it seems to pick up short rays if the other parent is rayed, and the involucre shape may change. In Flora of Turkey it says it can be biennial, and I've seen rather large forms in Antalya that I presume may be such. d
