Hello, I have a problem with the identification of this plant. The gender seems "Amisnikia" but I'm almost sure in my island there is not this gender. Can anyone help me? I know the photo is not that good.

FloraFlorez, welcome. Welcome!
I cannot find anything for Amisnikia; is it spelled correctly?
Also please, which island?
When you have time can you take a photo of the entire plant including the leaves; that may help with the identification.
Thank You!

Hi sorry, it is Amsinckia. The problem is that i need to make an herbarium so i take a little piece of the plant and i tried to classify it but it seems really difficult for this plant.

Amsinckia, thank you.
Perhaps this plant was introduced on your island?

Maybe it can be an exotic plant, i'm not sure Smiling I hope it is a local plant!

What about this plant? I think it is a carduus but i'm not sure the gender.

Hi FloraFlores, the 2nd plant is certainly a cardoon. It may be this one which is native to your island. Lamyropsis microcephala

I found this:

Perhaps it will help you to narrow it down.
