urens?

Initial thought was that it was urens, but it is a bit difficult to get a sense of scale from the picture. How tall were the plants, how big are the leaves...etc? One leaf creeping in at the top of the picture looks to be quite big?

Length and height

I don't have any scale photos of this (which I will remedy next time I observe) so I can only go off memory. This wasn't a tall or bushy plant and the main leaves in the centre of the image were ~5 cm in length. I believe the whole plant was ~ 0.5 m in height.
