Plant Quiz!!!

Here is a quiz plant, for those interested in such. The photo was taken in late June at MU Forestry Camp near Poplar Bluff, Missouri. Following Keith's advice of not moving the image, the photo will enlarge if you click on it.

Very nice picture, Justin!
I'm guessing Krigia caespitosa, thanks to the late Dan Tenaglia's profoundly excellent website (Missouriplants.com).

I'm sure the family is asteraceae.
Is that a coreopsis species?

Aminbest - you were correct in guessing that the plant is in the family Asteraceae. However, it is not a Coreopsis... it is Krigia caespitosa.
