Autograph Tree -- Clusia rosea: seed pods

Seed Pods
Beautiful star shape carmel colored seed pod from the Autograph Tree. This tree is along Waikiki Beach, Hawaii. Someone has scrapped their initials onto a leaf in the upper right of this photo. Reportedly, that "autograph" will permanently remain on that leaf, presumedly even after it falls off the tree. We probably will want to go back sometime, just to verify.

Can this beautiful thing actually be an invasive alien?
