Pterocarpus erinaceus
Kino Ki"no, n. The dark red dried juice of certain plants, used variously in tanning, in dyeing, and as an astringent in medicine. [1913 Webster]

Note: The chief supply is from an East Indian leguminous tree, the {Pterocarpus Marsupium}. Other sources are the African {Pterocarpus erinaceus}, the tropical American sea grape ({Coccoloba uvifera}), and several Australian Eucalypti. See {Botany bay kino}, under {Botany bay}, {Gum butea}, under {Gum}, and {Eucalyptus}. [1913 Webster]
