The cientific name of this wonderful tree is Calycophyllum multiflorum, Eukylista spruceana ...
" This is a Mulateiro Tree, a fascinating multi-purpose canopy tree in the Amazon. It grows tall and straight up to a height of about 30 meters, and has been long used as a source of good, high density lumber. It produces an abundance of small, white, aromatic flowers (from June to July) which are followed by elongated seed pods with 3-5 seeds inside. The tree propagates easily from the many seeds it produces. It can often be found near water as it can survive common periodic flooding in the region".
I took this photo in a small park near from my home ; )
