Mucuna sp. #005
The "Red Thick-Banded" Mucuna


Only a couple specimens of this seed have been found, and both stranded on Texas (USA) shores.
Mike Ley states: "It is the only one like it that I have found in over 14,000 desirable seabeans that I have collected."

 

This "Red Thick-Banded Mucuna" specimen was found by Mike Ley on December 11, 2013 on Padre Island National Seashore, Texas, USA
