Description


Manicaria saccifera is found mainly in the coastal areas of Belize, Izabal, Honduras and as far south as South America. It should be noted that the Manicaria saccifera seed pods look like masses of bull balls. It received the name of Pilophora testucularis Jacq. by a humorous botanist about a century ago.
