The flower - yes, it looks like a dandelion! And if it looks like a dandelion, it's (most likely) in the Sunflower family. And Silverpuffs (Uropappus lindleyi) are no exception. Each of the 'petals' above is an individual flower that produces a seed.
The fruits look like a dandelion, too. The seed is the thin black spike at the base of each silvery puff.
How about that?
