Thanks to a very efficient working Albert, we have yet another set of
additions of pictures to the IAS website to announce:
First we have finally created a separate page for Pseudodracontium. The link
to the Moscow webpage on that genus has long been defunct and we have waited
long enough. Now there is a new introductory page and a species list and pix
of all species. Enjoy.
To Amorphophallus have been added pix of the following species:
julaihii (only quite recently published as a new species)
mangelsdorffii (recently described as a new species)
paeoniifolius "bangkokensis": now this is a bit of a mysterious thing. It
has an inflorescence identical to paeoniifolius proper but much smaller but
the offsets of this one are thin and long and the petiole smooth and quite
difrerently patterned than any I have ever seen in paeoniifolius. This may
in fact be what has been described by Gagnepain as Amorphophallus
bangkokensis. I synonimised that species under paeoniifolius thus far but I
am beginning to think I may have to accept it as a proper species after all
now that I have seen it in its entirety.
Cheerio, also on behalf of Albert.
