Cicerbita alpina (Turt, in Norwegian)

Probably Cicerbita alpina (formerly Mulgedium alpinum or Lactuca alpina), "Turt" in Norwegian. This was found close to the Nigardsbreen, a glacier arm of the Jostedalsbreen.

 

An edible salad (Lactuca) vegetable growing in moist nutritious earth in the mountains in Norway. Perhaps "Turtagrø", not far from Jostedalsbreen, is a place with a lot of Turt?
