It's not easy ...

... to visually distinguish Matricaria recutita from Tripleurospermum inodorum. Why do you think it is the latter?

Favoured scentless mayweed

I chose the latter as I didn't notice any smell although I didn't try and smell the flowers. In the book I checked it said in the former the receptacle of the flower head is more conical and finally I googled images of both and decided it looked more like the latter. I am not sure about it but I think it is more likely. I have added another photo in case it helps
