Naked Mitrewort

Naked Mitrewort

I had identified this tiny little flower in a earlier post as Twayblade, but it’s actually Naked Mitrewort. I found out as I was looking around at different wildflower websites. Its’ common name is Bishop’s Cap or Naked Bishop’s Cap. The naked part refers to the bare flower stalk and the Bishop Cap refers to the seed pod that forms later. I don’t know if I’ll be able to find this plant again to see the seed stage. It’s such a tiny little plant that it probably gets totally hidden as the lush foliage of the forest floor fills in.
