Space Aliens in my Back Yard

Last night before we went to bed, I think space aliens came down and zapped a strange flower into the dirt in my back yard. I've never seen anything like it, and it came up overnight. Just this one flower. It has no petals, just this white circular thing with long legs sticking out of it with a green shoot coming up through the center.

Doesn't look like any mushroom or toadstool I've ever seen.

I think it may get up and walk away soon.

Anyone have any idea what it might be?

Hey...weird and I know my plants. Can you email me that photo so I can ask some master gardeners what it is ? Whatever it is...I like it !!

I don't know where you are in the world, but in my part of Texas, we have a flower called a spider lilly that grows in boggy spots and in cow pastures. No, I'm not making this up! And no, I'm not an expert--just a mom who's helped her kids with multiple wildflower projects.
