  [Aroid-l] Gonatopus angustus - Re: Fw: Unknown aroid in the Bot
From: Bernhard Strolka <strowi at t-online.de> on 2019.05.21 at 03:14:09
Aroiders, esp Wilbert,

the formerly unknown aroid, identified by Bobby and Wilbert as Gonatopus angustus, is flowering now.

http://www.amorphophallus-forum.de/unbekannter-zwerg-was-bin-ich/amorphophallus-f26/p40786-f17/#post40786

Does the flower fit to the former id-ing?
I will dissect the flower in order to show the inner parts but I will have to wait till the flower is open.

Any comment welcome!

Bernhard.

P.S.: Wilbert please see also:

Hey Wilbert,

 

digging deeper when it comes to the origin of a specimen is always interesting.....

 

When this unknown dwarf goes back to Werner Rauh the people in Bonn might know (or find) more as his student W. Barthlott got the inheritance (field books etc.) from Werner Rauh. Or the whole material is back in Heidelberg as they have the "The Werner Rauh Hertage Project" and W. Barthlott is an emeritus by now.

 

It might be possible to find something taking in account that Gonatopus is found in East, Southeast Africa and Congo; field books or photographs / slides form collection journeys in those regions might give something.

Maybe fieldbooks 3, 4 and 5.... http://scriptorium.cos.uni-heidelberg.de/php/FDD-Liste.php

but many of the entries seem to be not revised yet.

Well, I will forward the info to the young enthusiastic aroiders in Bochum.

 

Thanks again for your input,

Bernhard.

Hi Bernard,

 

The connection to Heidelberg is there. My “Munich clone” also has a deeper history in Heidelberg and is almost certainly a collection by Werner Rauh but none of the Heidelberg databases comes up with something and tells us the whereabouts of their specimen is “unknown”.

 

I may have to ask Josef Bogner again if his material also originated from Heidelberg.

Dear Wilbert,

 

thanks for the clarification and then hint on the leaf shape.

 

Those points let the two guys from Bochum doubt hat it might be G. angustus.

They are the youngest members of the gardeners team in Bochum and all they know is that the plant is labeled as G. boivinii and that it came from the Bot. Garden Heidelberg.

I will update them with your info....

 

Groetjes, Bernhard.

It  is indeed  Gonatopus angustus (syn. G. rhizomatosus). This must be a child of the Munich clone (as on the IAS website) that deviates considerably from many others of the species in having very short and broad leaflets, whereas more typically the leaflets are narrow lanceolate to even almost linear.

 

Cheers,

Wilbert
