Description

3rd image shows female flower; 4th image male flowers. All of these images are from the same plant as this one: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/40149168, and all of the manroot plants in the near vicinity had round fruits up to 5 cm diameter, with 2 to 4 developing seeds, leading me to conclude they are M. fabacea.
