Can we see..

..leaves and phyllaries please? Could be pseudo-radiate C. nigra, but can't tell without more info.

Leaves and phyllaries.

This plant was so close to the ground that it was impossible to photograph anything but the flower....

You can always..

..describe features, if it's not possible to photograph them. What was it that led you to an ID of C.nigra rather than C. scabiosa?

On reflection this does look like C.Scabiosa from the flower pattern.
