I thought they were podocarpus seeds but now they've starting sprouting I don't think it's a conifer anymore. Any clue?

Thanks. Paul.

I'm not sure what you have. The seedlings only show the cotyledons but will show a character leaf soon and it'll be easier to ID. Any chance you can gt a pic original tree?

Yes I guess when true leaves come it might be easier to ID, but I'm a little anxious because of the strange looking of cotyledons (at least they seem unusual to me).

No chance I could get a pic of the adult tree. I collected the seeds on the local botanical garden below a huge podocarpus, but seeds where from the droppings below a fruit eater bird nest (rather disgusting but could'n resist the collecting job already done!) so It could be any fruit bearing tree on the garden, and thou I know most of them, this one keeps eluding me...

I can't ask the stuff of the garden neither because of poor knowledge and care the have about everything... I'll post new pics in some days when they've grown a little more. Thanks.

Someone suggested me they could be Celtis iguanaea... Perhaps they are, now first true leaves have come, it has some resemblance.

I'm still not sure. Leaves remind me of Hamamelis, Platanus, etc.

Still not sure what they are, but the seeds are definitely not Hamamelis, nor Platanus. A mystery!
