Edible, but What is the species?

Zaqa(10b)June 19, 2014

Hello -

This may be a silly question, but I am just beginning to delve into eating/medicating off of the land and I wanted to make certain that I have my berries correct. Correct in the sense that, as a budding horticulturalist, I would like to know my Genus and species, not just the vernacular name. With that being said, the photo attached is similar to a raspberry, but I feel as though it may be a wild variety. Is this true and what is it please? Thank you very much in advance!

I would also like to specify thathis was found in a wooded area of Zone 6b in Indiana at the time of discovery.
