Moved
Moved from Unidentified Immature Stages.

Another one Ray Gagne might be interested in, if you saved any larvae.

 
I should just

Fruiting heads
...consisting of several achenes.

Proper botanical terminology
These aren't heads but rather developing fruits or seeds or something.
Moved this to Plants ID for an edit to the proper botanical terminology. Thank you.
