Wild Mango (Grias neuberthii), Yasuni National Park, Ecuador

The Wild Mango or Piton tree belongs to the family Lecythidaceae and is home in Ecuador. The trunk is straight upwards, branching very little until several meters high. The leaves are on the top, and are very large. The flowers are in inflorescences that come out directly from the trunk, the lower part of it, close to the ground where heavy bees and beetles (the natural pollinators of this species) live.
