Galls on Serjania sp., Sapindaceae

January 20, 2010

Someone not familiar with Serjania may have taken these to be its fruit.  I myself for a few moments thought so, before remembering the usual fruit look of this genus of  Sapindaceae.

This species, one of several of the genus, is a common local liana.

More of my images of  this sp. are available on Flickr (http://www.flickr.com/photos/plants_of_russian_in_brazil/sets/72157623126534791/).
