Hazelnut cluster

There it is, a tiny picture was all I managed today. It’s an intriguing
cluster of hazelnuts with extra length outer sepals (?) Cobnuts are a
horticultural crop so I do not know that much technically about them, I did
Agricultural Botany. I found it on the pavement, faraway from any obvious source
of cob-nuts. I do wonder if it might be better explained by a line drawing in
spidery black ink.
