Hi All,

Could you help me identify this plant please -- the one topped by berries. The picture was taken in Central New Jersey.

Looks like a type of Sumac. Hard to say what kind from the picture though.

Yes, take additional pictures - and post them at full size (not compressed) so that we can see as much detail as possible.

What I think I see: definitely a Sumac of some kind (Rhus sp.), and I believe it to be a Shining Sumac (Rhus copallina) due to the "wings" on the midrib (rachis) of the pinnate compound foliage.

Thanks, John -- I'll be back soon with some new photos posted at full size.

Hopefully this is a little better -- it's the best I could manage with my cellphone camera.
