Umbrella Milkwort (Tolpis barbata) is a non-native annual not often seen in North Coast Range grasslands. Like dandelions, the Umbrella Milkwort has all ray-flowers. Many members of the Aster Family have both disk-flowers (in the center) and ray-flowers (around the edge). There is also a group of Asters that has all disk-flowers. As a group they are all called composites.
