Unknown plant (ID request)

OK, so I don't know my botany. A year ago I found some interesting plants and took a couple photos. I believe they are one of the nightshades.






The berries don't get much bigger than they appear in the photos. They darken, becoming purplish as they mature.
Thanks for any assistance.

Happy mushrooming!

To the best of my knowledge, that would be a Solanum nigrum (aka Black Nightshade). Is the plant covered with hairs? What color are the flowers? One more question; where did you find it?

In the end, my friend, we will all be together again.

My first thoughts were of a Solanum, but then i thought it wasn't a nightshade at all.

I'm considering Solanum lookalikes, because the leaf morphology and it's lack of fuzziness to be a nigrum.

but to be certain..

I'm currently looking for other members of the Solanum genus.

The plants were not noticeably hairy. The flowers are small and white. They were found next to a building on the eastern plains of Colorado.

I thought it was bittersweet but the flowers are wrong. I'm gonna say petty morel like everyone else.

It would be alot easier to identify if the berries where ripe.

Search all the Solanum spp. and you will find what exactly it is.
It is a Solanum though and I understood it from it's berries.

I have never seen an experience with Solanum...
