Woodbine was originally named Vitis inserta in 1887. In 1893 it was described separately as Ampelopsis quinquefolia var. vitacea, and the two names coexisted. In 1894 the latter was raised to species status as Parthenocissus vitacea. The two were eventually united. The species epithet inserta was used first and has priority, so woodbine becomes Parthenocissus inserta.

I’m guessing woodbine because it had hairless leaf stems.
