Hi! I have been observing these for a while in the woods behind my house for a while now. They started out as these little bulbs on the surface of the ground and recently sprouted up and revealed these little black bulbs. Does anyone know what these are called?

Look like Monotropa uniflora, a plant that grows without chlorophyll, relying on other plants and fungi for many nutrients.
