ID Help - Single stem, umbrella-like leaves

cab321(5A)May 1, 2011

These plants are popping up in the overgrown yard of our new house in upstate NY (zone 5A). They are about 12" tall right now, but can only have been growing for a couple of weeks. There is a squirrel-chewed black walnut in the first image, if you need a sense of scale.

Thank you so much if you can help.

That's a May Apple (Latin name -Podophyllum peltatum, commonly called mayapple, is a herbaceous perennial plant in the family Berberidaceae, native to wooded areas of eastern North America.)
