Podophyllum peltatum
Mayapple

Mayapple may exhibit two types of morphology; in this image, a single leaf is borne atop a succulent petiole, and the attachment of the heavily lobed leaf is peltate (like an umbrella, and hence the specific epithet). The five to nine lobes are dentate a their apices, and so deeply sinuate that they may appear as radiating leaflets, rather than lobes. The two-leaf type of morphology is shown in another image.
