I will be posting some of my finds when i went with my friend to some neighboring areas before the break. I have posted some of the contents of my camera in previous posts, which include the colored eucalyptus bark and the thorny trunk. It has engaged some readers who found them unusual. If you haven't seen it earlier it is HERE. Now this post is another unusual find from that trek, unusual for me because i saw it for the first time! I hope anyone can tell me what it is called to give lead for searching.
This is the fruit of a vine. When the fruit dehisced, it looks like well parted petals, and the color is very attractively bright red. In contrast, the seeds are enclosed in white pulpy substance, a bit sticky, but maybe it will eventually dry and go with the wind. I wonder if any animal eats this. It reminds me of pomegranate seeds.
The above photo shows the thick layers of old leaves with diverse growths of plants and weeds. In that small area we can identify many species of plants. We do this in Ecology class but instead of an area we identify the living things we find in a transect, that is in between two long points with one meter wide. My unknown find is singly attractive in that area shown. I magnified the opened fruit in my friend's palm. I wonder if it is sweet as it very much look like so. In fact, i was very much tempted to taste it.
