It's certainly a hydrocotyle. All of the ones I'm familiar with in Florida have irregular leaf margins though. If you found it in the yard it is most likely Hydrocotyle umbellata, 'Dollar weed' 'marshpennywort'.

It's a long list for sure. The smooth leaf margins on that image is confusing to me. I'm not sure if it's growth pattern caused by conditions or another species I'm not familiar with in Florida. Curious to see what others think. The more common ones in Florida are

Hydrocotyle umbellata
Hydrocotyle prolifera
Hydrocotyle bonariensis
Hydrocotyle ranunculoides
Hydrocotyle verticillata
Hydrocotyle ranunculoides

All seem to have irregular margins.

Interesting. I wonder if the one in my yard came from one of my or my neighbors plants that we have brought in-potted. She is big on gardening, and it has been raining a lot here the last few weeks.

It's not lol. It was driving me crazy so I decided to look it up when I got home. It's a Dichondra most likely carolinensis...
