RE: ID this forest plant

I'm probably completely off the mark but could it be squaw root (Conopholis americana) ? I've never actually seen it growing though so sorry for shot in dark :)

Here is a link that might be useful: squaw root

RE: ID this forest plant

Looks like pine drops, beech drops, or one of those chlorophyl-free plants, but then again, not quite. Hmmm?


RE: ID this forest plant

First response was correct, Conopholis americana.
