From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Erythrina vespertilio is a tree native to north and north-east Australia. Its common names are the Bean Tree, the Grey Corkwood and the Bat's Wing Coral Tree.It was widely traditionally used by Aboriginal Australians in Central Australia for making woomeras and coolamons. The Warlpiri, among others, would use the wood to make shields, used either for warfare or ceremonially. These shields could then be used for making fire with the friction method. The bark is also considered to have medicinal uses, and the seeds are used to make decorations.
