weed/wildflower ID

I tried to identify this plant using

http://www.mywildflowers.com/identify.asp

and

http://www.realtimerendering.com/flowers/flowers.html

but nothing matched.

I'm probably entering incorrect information.

Could someone please tell me what genus/species this is? Then I can look that up and read about it, and maybe figure out how to use the online ID tools.

See link below for additional photos.

Thanks

Here is a link that might be useful: photos

Look under Sonchus (Sowthistle) and/or wild lettuce. Not sure, but at least the spent flower heads remind me of one of those.

Thanks, but I'm pretty sure that's not what it is.

Take a look at the photo gallery I linked to in the above post. The leaves, flowers, and stems are all quite different.

very tiny flowers (for scale, notice the ants) with white petals

Erigeron canadensis?

Conyza canadensis, aka Horseweed, as in your other post.

OK thanks for putting me on the right track.

I'm a bit puzzled though because the specimen I am looking at is a lot hairier than the C. canadensis pictures I have found on the web.

I'm going to start a separate thread for anyone who would like to discuss that.
