Nr, Havrvig Klit, Vestjylland, Danmark
This species is characterised by by the sole capitulum terminating each stem and by short, stout stolons with large and more or less crowded leaves.
Pilosella peleteriana is in Denmark in addition to the occurence at Bornholm widespread in dune-terrain along parts of West-Jutland and North- and West-Zealand coasts, where it often grows in green dunes and dune heaths. The species prefers a low and more or less open vegetation and is often seen as dense mats along the roads and tracks which cut through the terrain. At the southern end of the dunes in Jutland it grows in abundance in the young crowberry-heathland that stretches south from Nymindegab to Houstrup Beach. By Stillinge Beach in western Zealand the species occurs on a flat sandy area behind the low dunes.
In Denmark rare, but in the dunes of Vestjylland locally in great abundance. Also found at Læsø, Anholt, North- and West-Sjælland and Bornholm.
