Squawroot (Conopholis americana), at Happy Hollow Park in West Lafayette. There seems to be a lot of this plant in this place. Squawroot is parasitic on the roots of oak trees and so doesn't have the green color of chlorophyll that most plants have. Picture taken May 2, 2010.

Notice the male oak flowers scattered on the ground, fallen from the tree.
