Sorry I didn't measure it, but by tiny I mean miniscule. Smaller than a speedwell, probably less than 5mm across. In the second picture you might see it is barely wider than a blade of grass.

the leves have few lobes 5-7)

the leves have few lobes 5-7) and open sinuses which is more typical of pyrenaicum, rather than molle (7-9 lobes, closed sinuses) but if the flowers are only a few mm across then molle more likely
