Name That Sail!!!

This might be a Stays'l because that's what it says on the bag it came in (it was included with the boat-PO has no idea of what it is). The material is light, like a parachute. Can someone with a clue please confirm for me?
Also, the sheets (?) coming from the two bottom corners in the picture are connected.

The top is 16' 3", the left side is 15' 10", the right is 16' 10" and the bottom is 5' 4". As noted in my sig, Cal 2-30. I suppose it could be an awning, but it's made by the same sail maker that made my Main (I forget the name).

Since you don't have a schooner, I'll assume it's not a Gollyacker.

My guess is some sort of spinnaker staysail. I've seen very low aspect ones for deep downwind courses but never a quadrilateral. You list the measurements as being wider at the top - how do you KNOW that's the top? Other than square riggers, I've never seen a sail wider at the top than the bottom.

Maybe is is a version of a anchor riding sail. Are those slided on the top edge to fit into a groove on the jib or main. and then the lines tie to the deck or a sheet or something...

I would guess it is a sail for a dinghy. I would expect an awning would be symetrical and a staysail 3 sided and a riding sail, smaller overall.
