Thanks Ashish for the ID. It may actually be a Sphagneticola trilobata. It's growing like a weed. I was able to find this species after you ID'd it as a Wedelia acapulcensis. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sphagnetico...

they kinda look a bit alike.. but I think this is not a beach daisy, they looked somewhat different as well.. i spotted this in the forest area :-)
