Subject: [Aroid-l] Fwd: Seeds of Typhonium (Sauromatum) brevipe

>>From: Victor Soukup
>>Subject: Seeds of Typhonium (Sauromatum) brevipe or gaoligongense
>> If anyone has seeds of either, or both, of the above named
>> Typhonium species, or knows of someone who might, please get in touch
>> with me. The seeds can be fresh or taken from a dry herbarium specimen
>> and can be up to 75 years old. I may be able to get by with only 2 - 3
>> seeds of each.
>> They are needed to confirm chemical relationships in this part of
>> the genus Typhonium. In 2000 in an article in Aroideana, Hetterscheid
>> and Boyce transferred these two species from Sauromatum to Typhonium
>> while presenting evidence for the move. They also presented evidence
>> that these species along with a small group of other Typhoniums are
>> different --- that Typhonium is paraphyletic.
>> My chemical evidence supports this grouping except that I have
>> never been able to find any seeds of the two above mentioned species to
>> ascertain that this same chemical difference exists throughout the entire
>> small group.
>> Please help if you can, otherwise I must just make an assumption
>> that they do in fact behave as their co-species, as reported by
>> Hetterscheid and Boyce.
