Could anyone identify this plant for me please. It was spotted in a wooded gill, ancient woodland, amongst bluebells and wild garlic. Not in a boggy situation.

Looks like a flower from the Arum family. The spadix (floral spike) is visible in the hole. The top part of the flower is missing.

In England Arum maculatum will be the most common species. The german wikipedia has some good pictures of the spadix.
