We tore up an dead butterfly bush and then this showed up. Has red berries. Do you know what it is?

Hello,

This is an Asian Honey suckle shrub. It is an invasive species and should be removed. Lonicera sp.
ID is confirmed by the vase shaped form, shallow root system, red fruit, and opposite leaves. http://www.wvnps.org/FightingInvasives.pdf
