Phyllanthus tenellus (long-stalked Phyllanthus) is my best guess.

Mentioned on the other thread was phylanthes tenellus...
It could be...

Other options are phyllanthus caroliniensis seen here:
https://bwwellsassociation.wordpress.com/2014/10/10/north-ca...

And...
Phylanthes Debilis....

There's probably others...
I consider them all to be remove on sight and add to the grill or the garbage...
Born pregnant weeds...

If you have kidney issues...
Maybe make tea.

I just looked at the Florida ISB Atlas of Vascular Plants and Phyllanthus tenellus is found in my county and the pictures look just like it. Normally, this and the other Phyllanthus are "pull on sight" weeds for me, too. I'm conducting an experiment to see what the caterpillars using it turn into. I'm 99% sure they're moths, but that doesn't mean I love them any less.

A search for "Phyllanthus butterfly host plant" could lead to finding some info too. If the cats have a reddish head with stripes, compare to armyworm. I find those on so many diff plants.
