That is quite large! I was not referring to "Maple seed-type" winged seeds, but thinking of seeds like Cardiocarpus, which have small wings that cover nearly the entire perimeter of the seeds LINK, LINK). However, given the size of your specimens, it may prove more fruitful (pun intended) to compare your specimens with larger species of Trigonocarpus LINK) and Rhabdocarpus LINK). Crookall (1976) would be a good reference to do so.

Kind regards,
Tim
