  Colletogyne on IAS website

Hi Folks,

For all you lovers of the REALLY exquisite (and that only to be found among
tuberous aroids) Albert and I have prepared a page on Colletogyne, a small
gem. Just been rediscovered.

have fun at: http://www.aroid.org/genera/colletogyne/

Hrumph! While I admit that Colletogyne is rather nice I my heart still
flutters most when presented with a colossal Epipremnum or Rhaphidophora...

Ah, yes, the unshakeable hardliners are still among us...............

And this coming from the man who wrote a revision of Arum and Biarum (when
to be published?) and even got an Amorphophallus named after him..... WHAT
is this world coming to.......??????

Biarum is in press for the next Aroideana (indeed, forms a substantial part
of the next Aroideana) along with a 10 years on update for Arum. Of course
the Biarum is a article that has been a while finished and Arum update I've
done from need to well.... update BUT I did all my main tuberous work before
I learnt about REAL aroids...

Regarding the eponymous Amorphophallus, yes, true... but I didn't REQUEST it
to be burdened with my name
