|One sprout showed up in my wintersown container, but I rather doubt it's shooting star. |

I did sow two types of corydalis, but not on that same day. I was careful to avoid cross contamination of my plantings this year, but even if I had none of those started that day seem to fit. The anemone is furry, so I cant see it being that one, and the rest are either up in other containers or are pretty much known to me by sight.
These are the ones I started that day:
Streamside Lupine (Lupinus polyphyllus)
Amethyst shootingstar (Dodecatheon amethystinum)
Columbine (Aquilegia vulgaris 'Clementine Salmon Rose')
Papaver somniferum 'Drama Queen'
(Anemone patens var. multifida)
Fragrant Persian Stonecress (Aethionema schistosum)
I'm thinking it might be a seed that got into that packet unintentionally.
The leaves kind of remind me of a bleeding heart that I have here, but I've never started seeds of those so...

|In my opinion, doubtful that it is any Anemone or Pulsatilla(Anemone) patens.|
If you look at my photo here
you'll find an assortment that includes Corydalis, Anemone and Pulsatilla in the seventh column. Click on the image, and it is detailed enough for you to zoom in and see. Count from the left, the seventh column is the one that starts (from the bottom) with the tallest white tag.
You can see that Anemone and Pulsatilla have much broader cotyledons, and are held differently. Indeed, yours may not be Corydalis, though. There are many, I would think, that can look like that at such a young stage.
Other things from the top of my head:
other Apiaceae (Carrot family)

|Nice seedling pix, Rick. |
There's another sprout in the jug today. I'm anxious to see if it's going to be the same type, or the right one. I'll take the one in question out, pot it up, and see how it looks in a week or two.

|It looks very much like Fumaria officinalis which I have growing in my garden, I have seedlings at various stages now and one is much like yours chelle except it might be a little more bluish than green. |
I've taken a photo of my seedling but won't be downloading it just yet.
Corydalis is in the same family.

|Wow, Janet! I certainly does look like Fumaria officinalis. http://www.online-utility.org/...|
It seems to be displaying the same type of growing habit, too. I'd be very pleased if it turned out to be this plant!
Thanks so much for the direction!

|Don't get too excited yet chelle, Corydalis seedlings look very similar. You will find out when it flowers, F. officinalis is an annual, the stems are very delicate and leggy. It likes to grow up amongst supporting plants.|

| Oh, I know, Janice.|
I just this morning noticed that it also looks similar to Anemone blanda.

|Here's two of my Fumaria officinalis seedlings, somehow I don't think yours is this but it still could be. In the young leaves there are slight differences, but seedlings may vary. |
Apr 28, 2013 2:04 PM CST
|They are quite variable, aren't they? |
Thanks for the pictures, Janice.
Mine has its second set of leaves now, so I'll try to get new pictures soon.

|This one is looking more and more like Anthriscus cerefolium, which I did plant this year. I'm guessing it was just a stray seed that ended up in the wrong container. No new picture at the moment.|

|I'm not surprised.|
Thanks for the update!
May 7, 2013 10:04 AM CST
I'll post a new picture as soon as I get one taken.

|Here's the original plant. It's growing very fast now that I've up-potted it.|
Here's another seedling that came from the jug marked as Anthriscus cerefolium. It's a late sprout.
