Can any one clarify on some

Can any one clarify on some points and advise what I can look for to confirm ID.
My images aren't very clear as the plants are very small.
My understanding is the that long stalked would have larger flowers, they would be rounded not notched and that it would be less hairy.
I referred to the British wild flowers website http://www.british-wild-flowers.co.uk/C-Flowers/Cranesbill,Cut-leaved.htm which shows long bristles on sepals like the long stalked.

More images

I've added some more images including one with ruler for scale. I've checked and measured a number of the flowers, all measure 5mm.
Hopefully these images may help.

Photos

The new photos are Geranium dissectum, so perhaps I misjudged the scale of the earlier photos and was lead astray by the sepals.
