Description

Sorry about quality of pics it was raining. I found this presumed weed species in several places throughout highly modified farmland near Hokio. The plants were noted where no competition was occuring, eg pond margin recession or exposed ground. The plants were either prostrate or approximately 30cm high. The largest leaves are approx 15mm long two soft around margin. There are small hairs all over the leaves and stem.
It was flowering as you can see from pictures. It looks a bit like a nettle to me but I cannot for the life of me find it in any of my books, please help.
