What is that growing?

I am a touch suspicious about my “euphorbia” seedlings; they look suspiciously like the mallow plants I have growing elsewhere (and there are also some seedlings that look distinctively like cosmos). I have never grown euphorbia before so it could still be what I thought it was.

However, I wonder if I have not been careful enough with soil hygine, as I tend to mix what is left over after pricking out one set of seedlings into my next batch of compost. If that includes seeds that were slower to germinate, I am going to end up confusing matters and, potentially, damaging the seedlings I did want to grow.
