Taraxacum leucoglossum is a dandelion in the family Asteraceae. It is an endangered species and is only found in Russia. This dandelion grows on the coastal rocks of the Turiy Cape in the Tersky District of the Murmansk Region. The species can be found on the southern slopes in the crevices of rocks and fine soil filled rock fissures, in narrow rock shelves. The population grows on a small area of approximately 100 metres along the coast. The limiting factor is a narrow ecological amplitude. The entire area now populated by this species is located in the Kandalaksha State Nature Reserve, which is a sufficiently reliable guarantee of the survivability of the population.
