|Located in disturbed roadside areas adjacent to sagebrush plant communities. Taos New Mexico. Elevation 7500 ft. Largest plant I've seen is 5-6 inches tall. Grows in small groups of about 5 - 10 plants. 3-5 ray flowers. Guessing a member of Asteraecae. Thanks for the help! All the best!
|Could it be a 'Trifid bur marigold' - Bidens tripatita?|
|I don't think it is a beggar ticks. Leaves are trifoliate & lance shaped and have an silver/whitish powdery coat. Leaves are opposite. Each side has a longer leaf shoot and smaller axillary one. I will try to add a better photo of the leaf structure.|
