Plant Quiz Solved - Thlaspi perfoliatum!

Good call Scott! It is Thlaspi perfoliatum, Small Pennycress, with auriculate-clasping (not perfoliate) leaves on the stem. Some are now calling this Microthlaspi perfoliatum.

Do you recognize this little weed? Feel free to identify it or just take a guess! Photographed in St. Joseph County, Indiana on April 19, 2012.

Capsella bursa-pastoris, or something else cruciferous?

It is indeed cruciferous, but it isn't Capsella. Good try though!
