Found this by a large wetland in the winter. Lots of large leaves around so making a guess.

Description

Maybe there were multiple species around, but you can see another fruit pod in the bg of http://www.inaturalist.org/observations/911110, the shape of which seems to suggest N. lutea ("mature fruits mostly less than 1.25 times longer than wide")
