Asteraceae. First thing came to mind was Tagetes minuta which it is not. Should be a close cousin

Thank you ... I was guessed so. I shall check.

Great find, ... I would like to know about the journey you took to reach this ID ! 
What hints, clues you had! 
I had spent about an hour on it, but, obviously without any result. 
Me too. I spent a lot of time. I gave up because I thought that perhaps these flowers are not fully developed and hence I cant make decisions. I thought it was just me...
