    Those seed pods remind me of Guaiacum, and the small number of leaflets as well, and the tree habit. Yet it's not quite a match. Maybe something in the Zygophyllaceae family? Not that I'm finding anything.

    Wow, another Sapindaceae. That's the family your Cossinia posting is from too.

    Oh goodness me....that looks really good.
    Seed pods look a definite match.
    Excellent...many thanks Tyrlych.

    Any chance that you can take it to the next step for which one???
    I have started searching but there doesn't seem very much info on www here in UK re Molinaea.

    Coincidence that I kept finding Sapindaceae.
