Myosurus minimus is a member of the Ranunculaceae (Buttercup Family). It's one of those very tiny plants that is best discovered while micro-botanizing on hands and knees. It grows in the dry clay of fallow fields and seems to have a special affinity for flat clay-and-gravel places in county fairgrounds. It's only about 2-4 cm in height (around 1-2 inches) and is very easily overlooked.
