These are two trees that I am trying to ID from pix of the seedpods, both seen in northern KNP in October 2008.

1. This one I think is the pod mahogany? Seen on the Punda Maria Flycatcher Trail on 19 October 2008.

Any help is much appreciated!

Is this tree a Pod-Mahogany? This tree sits in the middle of the road on the S130 (a loop of 13 km on the main Croc Bridge - Lower Sabie rd). I did not take a close up of the leaves unfortunately. Taken in June 2010. According to my book guide Pod Mahohany should have no leaves in June.

Agree, from a distance it looks like a Pod Mahagony, leaves can stay on longer, general guidelines are given in the book. The rest of the bush still looks quite green.
