Which fleabane?

Thanks for this leaf attachment detail info cabbageleek. I've attached a crop showing the clearest attachment points I can find in my pics. Am not sure how much they need to clasp the stem to make this E. philadelphicus. They don't seem to very much. I can't find records of that species in Slovenia, though that doesn't mean it isn't there... There are many records of E. annuus, but that doesn't mean they are all correct. .. Maybe you can look at the close up and say which you think it is.
