SOLVED: Plant ID request: White berries

Hopkins, MN

I have these plants in some forest undergrowth with clumps
of pure white shiny berries.

I am having trouble identifying this as all searches of plants
with such berries have leaves with smooth edges, but my
plant has jagged compound leaves (5 to a stem mostly, but
sometimes 3 to a stem).

Any ideas? thanks.

White Baneberry (Actaea pachypoda).

Probably White Baneberry or Doll's Eyes, Actaea pachypoda:

The leaves and berries seem to match the baneberry almost exactly.

The only thing that doesn't match quite is the stem of the berry. Web
pictures have relatively thick bright red stems. My picture doesn't
show the stems well, but my plant has rather thin stems and not that
bright red.

white berry form of red baneberry (they can be easily confused with White Baneberry)

That's the answer, I have the red baneberry with white berries. Pictures on the web match well to what I have with the thin stems. Sounds like nasty plant, all parts poisonous.

Thanks for answering everybody, I'll consider this one closed.
