This vine sprouted (apparently from seed) in the wild in east Texas. It looks like a grape vine, but its leaves are shaped differently from muscadines growing wild nearby. Can anyone identify the plant, and if so, is it a self-fertile variety or will it need a pollenator? I've attached a photo.

It could be a Mustang Grape. The leaves are quite similar.

I agree, it looks like a species of wild grape, but I have no idea which one.
