Description:

I'm not 100% sure on this one, but if it's NOT a Lesser Teasel, then I'm beaten. Not uncommon, that.

I think midrib of leaf is wrong for Small Teasel

I thought from the inflorescence that this was Small Teasel, but looking more carefully, that leaf with a pale midrib is characteristic of a normal Teasel. And the one on the lower right has spines on the underside.

Flowers

Small Teasel would have white flowers.
