  Arum concinnatum
From: Kiehlmann at gmx.de (Dietmar Kiehlmann) on 2008.06.03 at 21:24:56(17721)


friends of mine found an Arum-species in Northern Greece on peninsula
Chalkidiki. I think it?s Arum concinnatum. But this species is restricted
to the extreme southern tip of the Peloponnese and to the most islands of
the E Mediterranean ( CATE Araceae ). ?Is the distribution of Arum
concinnatum now to extend or is my identification not correct?

Please have a look on the pics.

Best regards

Hi Margret, It looks like concinnatum to me. And if so is indeed
interesting as Peter Boyce (more recently in Aroideana 29, 2006) records
it as occuring on only the southern part of the mainland.

Hi Margaret,

This is Arum italicum. Arum concinnatum has the spadix appendix almost as
long as the spathe limb.

But please do not be too disappointed; this is a VERY nice form of A.

Very best

Hi Pete,

thank you very much for the identification of my ?A. concinnatum? as
a form of Arum italicum.
I am not at all disappointed because a very nice plant remains a very
nice plant regardless of the nomenclature.
So we (Anna and me) have learned a bit more about the variability of
Arum italicum.
