Clueless

Anyone know what this is? Any suggestions or ideas? I'm beyond stumped. I don't even know where to begin to research this thing.

I dissected it. The fleshy tentacle thingies are some what juicy, like a berry. & I live in Baton Rouge, Louisiana if that helps at all. Thanks in advance!

Can you give us an idea of the scale?

You are seriously in the running for the July Bravest Poster award, to dissect that!

Something related to Osage orange or ginkgo biloba, perhaps?

It could be a fruit from a Paper Mulberry.

Exactly..........there is no size reference or mention if these are numerous like fruit, or solitary. It isn't cheating to give us some sort of clue. ;-)

It would also be nice to know what it was growing on ... or lying under.

I'm with Calliope. Cedar Apple Rust I'd say.

And here's where it appears in Louisiana (and other places besides NC):

Dark blue = Species present in state and exotic
Aqua = Species exotic and present

Okay, I'm clueless as to the difference! (Perhaps the dark blue means it might not be present in that county, but is present somewhere in the state?)

Here's the BONAP color-code explanation page:

The aqua is a subset of the blue. Blue indicates it's in that state (note the whole state is covered). Aqua is by county and means confirmed presence in that county.

It's a weird system.

Thank you nel5397 and saltcedar. It would have niggled at me not knowing. Does not grow in my locality and never had heard of it. Learn a lot in this forum.
