RE: woodland vine

I know, I know, even though you don't have the leaves of the vine pictured. I was helped with this one not long ago, when I just posted the seeds pod too.

Genus: Dioscorea
Species: villosa
Common Name: Wild Yam, Huang Yao Tzu, Shu Yu, Yam

Do the leaves look like those in the link below?

RE: woodland vine

Good call chemocurl, I'd second that ID :)

The big leaves in the photo are a bit deceiving since they are on another plant being climbed by the vine. A few leaves down below look like the wild yam leaves but they do not show well in this photo. The seed pods are certainly distinctive enough to make the ID, though. I usually see this plant in wet feet areas...some of the best spots to explore :)
