Observation 44378: Dicentra cucullaria

When: 2010-04-17

Collection location: Franklin Co., Ohio, USA [Click for map]

Who: Aaron (salisbury4573)

No specimen available

Sorry if this isnt a Fungi, I noticed this today while out, it was a cluster of small “berry-like” red objects at the base of a plant.

Not sure what type of plant it was, not sure if this is even a Fungi, I just thought this was an interesting photo.

Any help indetifying this would be appreciated. Sorry for the poor quality of the pictures.

I think this is the bulblet/rhizome.
