Seeds "red and black"

The following is a list of native or naturalised species which, at least some of the time, possess this spot-character.

By this, we mean that the seed is partly coloured black and partly red. The red colour may be because of an aril (e.g. Afzelia quanzensis) or simply (apparently) a bicoloured seed as in Abrus precatorius.
