Phenakospermum guyannense (Rich.) Endl. ex Miq. - Strelitziaceae

The genus, Phenakospermum, with only two species, is native to the northern regions of tropical South America.  The fruit is a three-celled capsule with orange arils (the seed's appendage) attached to black seeds.

The Andoke tribe of the Amazon used the sap of this tree to treat liver problems and chewed the stems to prevent dental caries.8
