White Moneywort (Alysicarpus vaginalis), a non native weed in the Fabaceae (Pea family). This species is in the Papillionoidae subfamily, members of which have pea shaped flowers (reminding some botanist of butterflies I suppose, as Papillion means butterfly in Latin). Note the simple leaves (unusual for a Fab). The species epithet means sheath, referring to the sheathing stipules along the stem.
