I posed a question almost 4 months ago.

... about a red and black seed that reminded me of my childhood.

Then recently ran into wild seeds in a pod on a vine by a footpath in a beach front.

Took some of them as samples.

Google returned the following link. They are called abrus precatorius. Turns out to be also called the rosary bean, one of the most beautiful but deadly seeds on earth.
