Common Nipplewort (Lapsana communis): Two collections in ARCTOS, one from Ketchikan (1979) and two from Sitka (first in 1996). Many reports in AKEPIC database, mostly from communities, but also other areas of human activity (roads, logging camps, etc.). Seems to be more common in the southern part of the region.
