What is this?

Hello -

What is this burr? It is fairly reminiscent of a Geum canadense, but it is much more compact and larger. The leaves are also a tad different than G. canadense. This was found in Central Indiana.

Geum canadense (White Avens) fruit.

Dry seedpods.

jekeesl : So these are just a larger variant of the usually quite small and more conically button-like Geum canadense? Thanks for the ID.

The fruit seem a bit large for G. canadense. Perhaps G. laciniatum.

Sorry, I didn't read the initial post. At least now, I've learned a bit about other Geum species :). I'll defer to lycopus on this one.
