Thank you. Interesting info here. The close relatioinship between extant African and Indian sp. could lead me to believe that Gondwana, or the Indian plate at least would have been a center of origin? If there were any South American sp. one could possible compare the Indian sp. to the SA species to help get better estimates of age of diversification.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this.

Are you planning some work on this? The reason I ask is that Susan Renner is currently investigating Arisaema and also the complex of taxa around Typhonium; the latter is another genus with a peculiar and quite possibly very ancient distribution.
