I have heard that Dioscorea batatas is becoming problematic in central Ohio and this looks like what I have had described to me. iNat does not appear to recognize either.

Didn't realize this family was in FNA... Dioscorea batatas is a synonym of D. polystachya. I picked up D. oppositifolia somewhere online, which is misapplied to to this species.
