Native, or introduced?
The specific epithet, "togoi" leads me to believe this is a tropical species now occuring in North America. True?

 
...
togoi was introduced sometime after WW2, likely from Japan.

 
Thanks.
Thank you for the information. Might want to add it to Beatrice's list of exotics in the "Articles" section of the forums.
