A bilobed strucutre develops from the distal end of the funiculus,primarily by cell enlargement, during the ontogeny of the seed of Eriosema glaziovii Harms. This appendage is present in all species of Eriosema and was found to contain conspicuous oil droplets in the thirteen species examined in this study. The appendage is referred to as a strophiole or a rim-aril although seeds of the genus have been previously described as estrophiolate by other authors.
