Urucurana seedpods

In the very humid and at times wet Amazon, everybody and everything gets fungi. Believe me, it can happen to you too, if you don't get plenty of sunshine. I found these urucurana seedpods (Sloanea sp.) on the footbridge I built to get across an ancient creek that today is very much in the shade. I've shown these pods before on this tropical biodiversity blog, but in the green and dry forms. Coming up, a picture of the leaves of the tree.
