  • Do you recognize these shells/seeds found in my car?

    I opened up the lower right front cowl to repair some pin-holes and I found a stash of these shells/seeds sitting behind the panel. They look like very small cherry pits to me. There was no evidence of critters ever having lived in the car so I don't know how they got there. The driver's side is clear.

    The car spent its life in Ohio and Pennsylvania. Can someone from that area identify these for me?

    Acorns, I'm pretty sure.

      If so, they are sure different from any acorns I have seen. These are really small (maybe 1/4" across) and look like they split down the middle like a cherry, apricot or peach pit.

          Maybe, but do you know the latin name for this species?

            They are hackberries. Get a cat, mice love them. If you have a hackberry tree mice will collect these and leave them mostly on top of your engine block.

              I am not so much concerned with the nuts, its the pieces of "Stude dandruff" that are problematic.

                Don't have a clue but we in Michigan just love the sound of that.

                  Yeah, you noticed a few 'flakes' along with the pits, right? Don't worry, I am going to wash the car with Head and Shoulders Dandruff shampoo before I weld up the patch panels.
