Plant ID Help

I came across literally tons of this growing along the margins of a local pond here in South Louisiana. Is this Hemianthus micranthemoides? Thanks.

Baby's tears.

Hemianthus micranthemoides hasn't been seen in decades and most likely extinct.

Check out this link which describes the plant including a video. Despite being from a Florida university this plant is also native to your area.
