The genera published by Linnaeus were Arum, Calla, Dracontium, Lemna, Orontium, Pistia and Pothos. Lemna of course was included into Araceae a few years ago. He published Species Plantarum more than 30 years before the family name Araceae was published, that's why I wonder as members of what family/families he described them.

Dear Marak: I believfe that Linnaeus did recognize the Araceae but he recognized only 4 genera, as I recall they were Pothos, Dracontium and Calla plus one other genus. The genera were very artificial and later Schott and others added many more genera, like Anthurium. All the earliest Anthurium species were described in Pothos.

This was always a question for me and I've never tried to find the answer so far.
If the family name Araceae was stated in 1789, in what family did Linnaeus place the aroids?
