I located this plant in a wooded area in central Illinois. I have no idea what it is. It is covering the forest floor in some areas. Any help would be appreciated.

Can you show us the plant in it's natural setting?
I have a very difficult time telling anything from a leaf in someone's hand.

Compare with toothwort and corydalis.

Toothwort can be bipinnate, but never tripinnate as the plant in question is.
Corydalis spp. never have a leaf sheath as shown in pic #3.

Sorry, I'm not sure what that is.

If you're able to add a pic of the plants still in the ground, that could help.

Saw a similar plant elsewhere & it was ID'd as wild chervil. Thought I'd copied the botanical name to paste here but it's still pasting the thing I'd copied before that & that window is already closed. Hope just the common name helps, on my way out the door to go home from work.
