small plant in NW forest

Anyone know what this is?

They most are found on the edge of the forest, or where there was once an old logging road.

Herb Robert looks a lot like it ... as does Corydalis ... but I haven't seen any pics that are totally spot-on yet.

It sure looks like it. "Stinky Bob"! What a name! :lol:

So, how is the "characteristic smell" :?:

:) I haven't noticed a significant "stink" :shock: but I think you're right.

Thanks!
