Dick Mansell has posted three pictures of an unknown aroid on the Aroid
Identification Center page for me. Would you please take a look at 126,
126a, and 126b. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Hi Brian

Alocasia hypnosa J. T. Yin, Y. H. Wang & Z. F. Xu. It was described last
year from Yunnan but I've seen and collected it N Thailand (as has Alan
Galloway) and I've also seen it in N Laos. In the wild it grows in
humus-filled pockets in limestone cliffs with the long stolons colonizing
adjacent pockets. Another curious feature is that it's deciduous in the
wild, dieing back just like an Arum in the dry season (May - October).

Worldwideorchids provided the blooming golden lotus banana (Musiella lasiocarpa) that I just purchased from Home Depot for what compared to previous years prices for this species was a bargain.

There is also an unidentified Cryptocoryne on this site. Very nice pictures.
It is Cryptocoryne crispatula Engler var. sinensis (Merrill) N.Jacobsen.
This species is also known from the Guangxi province and from Laos.

Alocasia hypnosa also goes dormant here in South Florida.
