what else could it be?

They like the lawns of the Big Island, too.

Could you show us the underside of the young specimen?

The skirt-like partial veil of manicata has (just below it) what looks like a furry animal curled around the stem or an old fashioned lady’s handwarming item called a muff. This is very distinctive in manicata.

Very best,
