Remarkable?

This is reminiscent of the American T. mirus, the Remarkable Goatsbeard.

Looking it up on line I think

Looking it up on line I think you may well be right. Why not add it as an ID?

It's an American plant that I only know as an example of speciation by hybridization.

I'm happier agreeing with your generic 'Tragopogon'.
