Alamo Vine Dry Strands 0121

Yesterday’s post mentioned that Merremia dissecta is commonly known as alamo vine, and the first of today’s photographs, again from March 27th along E. 51st St., confirms that the plant is indeed a vine (although in this case a dried-out one). The photograph below, from August 20th near Shoal Creek below 34th St., shows an ant on a developing alamo vine fruit.
