II was hoping you could ID this vine for me. I've never seen anything like this one. It's a vine and grew 15 feet up into a Mesquite tree in Zavala County just south of Batesville, TX. The small stems were green but not a single leaf anywhere. It's a very odd looking vine. I hope the photos are descriptive/large enough.
I posted the photos on a website I maintain:
The vines near the base:
A clump of the stems about 4 feet off the ground:
and a photo of it about 15 feet up in the Mesquite:
It smelled a bit like a milkweed.
