What seed is this?

Collecting some good photo observations of seeds as an aid to identifying seeds found - for interest, to help reduce the numbers of invasive plants by preventing their germination, and to help confirm the identify of seeds collected for dissemination on restoration sites or for propagation.

NB - wild seed found under kereru roosts, including those in dense mature nikau groves, is nowadays, and increasingly, likely to include seeds of invasive exotic species such as Bangalow, Queen, Chusan, Fan and other invasive palms.
