    Hello everybody! I need some help, please! I discover this unknown seed, can you help me to identify it?
    Thank you very much!

    I found in the raw sample (before sorting) some seeds of Persicaria lapathifolia, which someone are deformed. Maybe my unknown seed it’s a Persicaria lapathifolia? What do you think about it?

    Hello Silvia,

    I also think it is a deformed Persicaria lapathifolia achene. It has a similar colour and surface texture as the species, and you found other deformed achenes in the sample. I wonder if the deformed seed has the 2 stigmas at the top? That might be an additional confirmation.

    I think your image of the collected achenes is excellent, and would be a good example for other seed analysts. Do you have a larger version available?

    Best, Jennifer


    Hello Jennifer,
    yes, the deformed seed has stigmas at the top, thank you. I am in the process of expanding my photographic collection of atypical seeds or without testa or with their fruit. in this moment I don’t have many shots but I will be happy to share this information with other analysts. Do you want to share it on this site, maybe in the forum “seed anatomy” or in others ways?

    Best regards,
