This is a photo of the next plant I am working on. Quite strange shape for the general flower! Let see who will guess what species it is.

Yes, exactly HC Weber; the photo shows male flowers of the monoecious plant - Xanthium strumarium.

Since
(i) you said it 8) and
(ii) in a determined way,
I thought that there is no need to confirm it!

Next ime I shall do it!

Here is a link for the profile of X. strumarium

sorry, I missed your contributions...
(i) there is always a need to confirm my thoughts!
(ii) there is no Maltese name, as far as I know.
(iii) you created so fast this topic: I pay homage to you!
