Found in the Green Mountain National Forest today, near Texas Falls on Rt. 125, Hancock, VT. I have no idea what this plant is.
UPDATE: Ruth identified this for me in comments: the fruit of Arisaema triphyllum (Jack-in-the-Pulpit, Bog onion, Brown dragon, Indian turnip, Wake robin or Wild turnip). Thank you.
