There is a wildflower in Northern Nevada looks a lot like common dandelion. The leaves are much different, much more narrow. The flowers could casually be mistaken for a common dandelion. The seeds even have a bit of dandelion like fuzz.

What is it called?

Malacothrix glabrata about the eighth or ninth down the page. Looks enough like a dandelion that it is called a Desert Dandelion. I was looking at some in a vacant lot recently. They have really attractive flowers. If I remember correctly from last year look rather ugly when they start to go to seed,
