| Epifagus americana, |
beech drops, Manistee County, MI, February 2012
This is a parsitic plant which derives its nutrition from the roots of beech trees. It will always be found under a beech. It has no chlorophyl or leaves, and looks about like this even in the summer, sometimes slightly more pinkish.
