Multipetal / Double-flowered Oxalis

Speaking of Oxalis, I have some volunteers that bear an uncomfortable 
resemblance to O. pes-caprae, but the flowers are smaller and a darker 
yellow, leaves smaller and a darker green.

I suspect O. stricta or corniculata, and I wonder how weedy it is in 
Northern California. It's a pretty little plant, but I've been 
traumatized by O. pes-caprae in the past. Do I need to eradicate it?


PS, Andrew, I just found this picture of a double yellow Oxalis (species 
unknown) on flickr:
