The plant looks rather like wild woodland
strawberry (Fragaria vesca), or a cultivated
strawberry, but is a smaller plant, with smaller
flowers, and it doesn't form fleshy fruit. After
the petals have fallen from a flower no obvious
fruit forms. The petals are usually well separated
from one another, not overlapping.
