    Anyone happen to know what these are?

    Saw these while hiking in British Columbia. The yellow one was seen in a rainforest near the western coast of Vancouver Island, while the purple one was found further inland, in a mountainous area. I think they're some kind of saprophytic plant, like Squawroot or something like that. Been googling and hard to find a perfect ID.

    Those look familiar to me, they are plants! saprophytic plants... They will get taller and be more easily IDed at that point, try googling "boschniakia" and looking at the images.

    Awesome! I havent seen that page before. These are some of my favorite plants, they can be hard to find though. I know some great locations in Washington state where many species grow in the same general area.

    I think the top one is too small to ID, it could actually be the same species as the bottom plant, color is very variable.
