    Looks like water shield to me. The picture you posted is small, so I could be wrong.

    Might be some of both. I clearly see some round pennywort shaped ones and some elongated ones. Can you get a better quality picture?

    Pennywort is not hard to kill. Plain old Roundup (glyphosate) does the job just fine. But any herbicide needs to be applied at the proper solution rate. A mistake many people make is mixing it too strong because they want to see results ASAP. This is where more is less because a mixture that is too strong will result in killing the leaves which shortstops the chemical from reaching the roots. You will get brown leaves right off but the plant comes back. A herbicide like glyphosate doesn't kill the leaves directly. Instead it's picked up by the leaves and it translocates down to the root hairs which kills the whole plant dead and its not coming back.
