I found this little gem in a field, near a boggy/swampy area but it wasn't particularly wet. I found several of them, they all seemed to have the one flower stalk and only one bloom at a time. (Sorry for my hand in the way, it was very windy today)

The narrow dark green leaves are the foliage of the plant in question.

It took me a while to find seed pods, but I did eventually, and collected a few...

Any clues about what this might be?

Quite a while ago I asked for an ID of a similar plant. It was identified as a Phasey Bean/Macroptilium lathyroides.
Please look at this link and others available on the internet to see if it matches your plant.

I agree with the ID.

That is definitely it.

Very cute plant but I guess I better not offer the seeds!

I also want to know of a plant found in Florida. It was planted near my house so it's not a new discovery, but it's my new favorite flower. It be kinda dumb of me not to know the name of my favorite.
It also smells really nice. It had originally had 5 petals. Thank you in advanced! Smiling

Blobfish, is it possible to upload a clearer photo of that bloom and also pictures of the entire plant would help; showing stems and leaves. Information on height might help as well as location (what part of the state )and if it growing in full sun or shade, etc.

There are many Florida native yellow 5 petaled wildflowers; one that comes to mind is
Spotted St. Johnswort (Hypericum punctatum) but it's really impossible to identify your plant from that one photo you supplied.
