Mercury Bay weed Dichondra repens, from here.

Belongs within: Gentianidae.
Contains: Ipomoea, Merremieae, Argyreiae, Convolvulus, Cuscuta, Nicotiana, Datura, Cestrum, Solanoideae.

The Solanales is a large clade of flowering plants, with most of its members being divided between the Convolvulaceae, the morning glories and related taxa, and the Solanaceae, including nightshades, tobacco, etc. The Convolvulaceae are usually viny in habit, though there are exceptions: Humbertia, for instance, is a large tree found in Madagascar. The Dichondroideae are a small group of creeping herbs that differ from other Convolvulaceae in their possession of deeply two- or four-lobed ovaries. Solanaceae vary from herbs to small trees, often characterised by irregular insertion of the leaves, branches and flowers on the stem (

Synapomorphies (from O-methyl flavonols present; inflorescence terminal; pollen tube usually with callose; calyx persistent in fruit.
