clover? maybe a weed? smooth on both side round leaflets three leafs to a stem. the leaflets are toothed around the edges . there is a leaf marking of a light green narrow band extending across leaflet. no hairs on it. because of leaf markings i am going to say it is a white clover.
Habitat: White clover can be found in most grassy areas in North America and New Zealand.
Role in niche: It allows plants around it to grow better since it keeps nitrogen levels at the right amount and can outcompete some weeds. Many livestock eat this plant as well.
