Entada

 

a genus of lianas of the family Mimosaceae. The plants reach the top of trees in tropical forests. The vines are woody and sometimes thick; their base measures as much as 50 cm across. The leaves are twice-pinnate, with terminal tendrils clinging to the support. The white or yellow pentamerous flowers are in spicate inflorescences. The fruit, a pod commonly called a snuffbox bean, sometimes reaches 1.5 m in length and 12 cm in diameter. There are about 30 species, occurring in the tropics of both hemispheres. The seeds are spread by sea currents as far as the coasts of Europe and Iceland.
