Kindly identify this minute prostrate groundcover plant with yellow flowers. flowers about 7-8 mm diameter.
12-15 mm seedpod breaks into 8 parts each with a spike to aid dispersal.
accompanying indigofera linnaei though less abundant. wild pasture-foot/animal/vehiclepath fringe.
It may be Tribulus subramanyamii (due to the style longer than that of T. terrestris) of Zygophyllaceae.
Here is another picture tho the flower is slightly out of focus.
