Daisy-like Plant

Thanks for your suggested ID. I can go back for more photos. Is there anything that would help confirm ID?

Leaf characters given in Stace are that the leaf segments of this are succulent, and have obtuse or rounded (rarely acute) apices, while those of Tripleurospermum inodorum are not succulent, and have acute, often bristle tipped apices.

There are differences in fruit characters as well, but they would be difficult to photograph (or to observe without a hand lens).

There are 3 subspecies - a photograph of the bracts would aid in distinguishing these.

You do have to wonder why the ID panel links fail. Who put in Tripleurospermum maritimum agg.?
Needs fixing by someone.
Precise searching for Tripleurospermum maritimum agg. usually leads to Scentless - T.inodorum.
About half the Mayweed posts show this 'syndrome'
