I live in New Zealand and found several of these seed pods in an old garden. I was told they were crocosmia but I have yet to see any photos with the netting-like stuff around them. Can you help?

If it is Crocosmia (and I'd love to see more pictures from other angles), it's not a seed pod, but a corm.

Crocosmia (Montbretia) has a fleshy corm with a fibrous outer layer - see the sample image below:
