Hello,
This is Synedrella vialis (Less.) Gray
its a small prostrate herb, while Synedrella nodiflora (L.) Gaertn. is a erect herb.

Thank you Rajdeo ji for correcting the id. 

May be the following link of a previous discussion in our group would be helpful.

I think the two species belong to two different genera

Calyptocapus vialis Less (syn: Synedrella vialis (Less) A. Gray; Calyptocarpus tampicanus (DC.) Small): straggling daisy



Synedrella nodiflora (L.) L. Gaertn (syn: Verbesina nodiflora L.): Synedrella

Here is the key to differentiate the two genera (Based of Flora of Taiwan and Flora of North America)



 Synedrella
Synedrella: Plants annual, erect or ascending, not rooting at nodes; heads aggregated; disc florets 4-12; cypsellae of ray florets with lacerate winged margins.

Calyptocarpus: Perennial, prostrate or decumbent, rooting at nodes; heads solitary at each node; disc florets 10-20; cypsellae of ray florets not winged

Thank you Gurcharanji
So the id of the flower is Calyptocapus vialis Less (syn: Synedrella vialis (Less) A. Gray; Calyptocarpus tampicanus (DC.) Small): straggling daisy
Because of the differentiating characteristics mentioned the id was clear and I also went on to see what is the meaning of disc florets and ray florets . It will help me for future understanding. I found that it is also called Lonestar flower quite an apt name.

Thank you again
Best regards
