Wow, what interesting little (or in the case of S. robusta), not so little plants. Ive always wondered about this genus, thanks so much for the link to your revision Eduardo.

Dear Michael,

You?re welcome. Scaphispatha is indeed a nice genus and it is not
so rare. The problem is that flowering events are rare and when it is not in
flower it looks exactly like an ordinary Caladium.

Very best wishes,

Thank you, Eduardo, for sharing your excellent revision with us. Much
appreciated. Small weird genera are my favorites!
