Spiny Goldenweed (Xanthisma spinulosum)

The species I am observing is a flower. I notice that this flower resembles a sunflower. The petals resemble a sunflowers petals but this plant is much smaller and has less petals. Also the middle of this flower is yellow and fluffy. The middle of the plant reminds me of fluffed up cotton. I notice the branch is green and it has what seems to be white webs. I notice the leaves are a bit spikey and they don't look like normal leaves on a flower, they are stiff. I wonder if this plant can be found anywhere else in the world. The picture was taken on November 8, 2020 at 11:45 AM. The location is Grant Tucson, AZ.
