Burkholderia phymatum is a species of proteobacteria that is capable of symbiotic nitrogen fixation with the legume "
lunatum" and "Mimosa pudica". Recently, the genome (8.67 Mbp long) was sequenced, it consist of two chromosomes (3.49 and 2.7 Mbp), a megaplasmid (1.9 Mbp) and a plasmid hosting the symbiotic functions 0.56 Mbp).
Other trees include "virola" (Virola sebifera), "cupiúba" and "jacarandá" (
genus), "andiroba" (Carapa guianensis), "sucupira" (Bowdichia virgiloides), "castanha-do-Brasil" (Bertholletia excelsa), "angelim" (Dinizia excelsa), "copaíba" (Copaifera genus), "breu" (Protium genus), "sapucaia" (Lecytis pisonis), "pau d'arco" (Tabebuia serratifolia) and "seringueira" (Hevea brasiliensis).

", and are also highly cannibalistic. The "Morpho" butterfly drinks its food rather than eat it. It uses its proboscis (long, protruding mouth part) to drink sap and fruit juices. "Morpho" butterflies taste with sensors on their legs and taste-smell the air with their antennae. They butterflies feed on the juices of fermenting fruit with which they may also be lured. The inebriated butterflies wobble in flight and are easy to catch. "Morpho"s will also feed on the bodily fluids of dead animals and on fungi. Therefore, "Morpho" butterflies may be important in dispersing fungal spores. The adults dwell in the forest canopy layer and rarely come near the understorey and forest floor layers; however, they have sometimes been observed flying near the ground in clearings.
The timber trade will sell many timbers under the name rosewood (usually with an adjective) due to some (outward) similarities. A fair number of these timbers come from other legume genera; one such species that is often mentioned is Bolivian "
scleroxylon" sold as Bolivian rosewood. Another that may be found in market from Southeast Asia is "Pterocarpus indicus", sold as New Guinea rosewood (and related species). "Dalbergia sissoo" is timber from rosewood species from India and Bangladesh, usually known as Sheesham or North-Indian Rosewood. It is extremely dense and has mild rot resistance, but it is porous and its exterior is soft and susceptible to wood-boring insects. It is used for making cabinets, flooring and carving. It is exported as quality veneers. Due to its after work quality when sealed and dyed, it is often sold as genuine rosewood or as teak. It has no discernible qualities of a genuine rosewood. It has comparable strength with teak, but lower quality and price than teak or "Dalbergia latifolia".
