Hi again!

Need ID on this plant #10. Has tiny odd shaped flowers, mostly white but has a bit of dark purple in the middle, and small green leaves with prominent indentations. No fruits so far. A small weed growing wildly through cracks, in Malaysia.

Polanisia species of some sort?

Cleome (Polanisia) chelidonii seems close?

BTW. A fruit is visible in the lower right corner of your photo.

Here is a link that might be useful: Cleome rutidosperma may be the correct species for this image
