Does anyone on the list have any ideas that could help out Kevin with a
Lysichton americanum question per the note below? Please reply to the list
so that all can learn, or to Kevin directly.

Many thanks, Scott

Check out the following article for more information:

Pellmyr, O. and J.M. Patt. 1986. Function of olfactory and visual stimuli
in pollination of Lysichiton americanum (Araceae) by a staphylinid.
Madrono 33:47-54.

It discusses chemical composition of the odor as I recall.
