A yellow-flowered composite species with no discernable UV pattern. Floral discs and outer petals all reflect little in UV.

This might be a parallell case to Potentilla fruticosa, thus the seeming lack of UV pattern can be interpreted as a "UV Yellow" flower. See the discussion under P. fruticosa. In Nature, simple things may be deceptivly non-simple, or simpler than you think.
