I don't think so: the first

I don't think so: the first criteria that distinguish Knautia from Scabiosa is the presence or not of "hair" between the flowers.
Here it is clearly a Knautia.
Furthermore, the hairs of S.columbaria are black...

In a lot a keys ...

... the first character is the number of petals.

But I count 4 petals here, making it Knautia. (There's one flower that looks as if it has five, but the fifth might belong to the flower behind.)
