Apparently the only way to tell Rough Sow-thistle from Smooth Sow-thistle is that the auricles of Rough Sow-thistle are rounded, and those of Smooth Sow-thistle are pointed. I can't see any auricles in this image, but the spaces between the spines along the edges of the leaves are rounded, and the illustration of Smooth Sow-thistle in my book shows pointed spaces. If anyone knows better, I'll be pleased to be corrected.
