Plant Identification

I Put It in Already

I can send a picture by text or email. I have a nasty little weed that is taking over my yard. Texas A&M doesn't seem to know what it is. It is close to the ground. Evidently spreads with seeds and runners and maybe even parts mowed off. I experimented with msma but can't use it, as it's illegal. Flat killed it though. It laughs at regular weed killers. Roundup kills it but will kill my yard too. The stuff has a powerful odor that can be smelled when mowed. It looks like lawn burr but it isn't. It has no burrs. It seems to have tiny little flowers almost imperceptible. Please help! My county agent has sent it to Texas A&M, but no one seems to know what it is. Jimbo
