The seed pods with immature seeds looks more like it is filled with insects or mites.

The mature seed is reddish-brown one with distinct ridges towards the center of the photo. Doesn't it look like an insect grub? Mealy bug? Nope, that is a seed.

Do you recognize what plant these insect-like seeds are from? If you choose to, please leave a comment with your ideas.

Mystery seed answers and new Mystery seeds are posted on Tuesdays.

Edit:  The answer is now posted.

    pod reminds me of Touch-me-not or Jewelweed, but I've never looked at the seeds. They do look like mealybugs here.
