Hi,new to the site and was not able to find a section for plant identification. I came across this berry plant in a nature walk and thought it looked interesting. Anyone have any thoughts on what it may be?

Hello Chloe, welcome to permies!

Can you tell us where this plant is in the world?

Looks like that to me also.
The Iriquois used the plant medicinally.
