blue seeds

Margaritaria nobilis (Phyllantaceae)


Semillas azules encontradas en el sendero


Muy atractivas por su color azul, lo malo es que al secarse se pierde la coloración. Thakns for your help. I know what seeds are now.

Roberto the seeds itself were clue for me. I like to eat Aamla Fruits (Phyllanthus emblica) many times and reminded their seeds. So I was sure with family Phyllanthaceae. So next it was easy to find exact specie. :)
