Hi Group,
I see it might not be an aroid any more, but does anyone

Dear Mike;
I always thought there were just 2 species -calamus and gramineus.
Is this just a synonym? a form? a geographic variety or truely distinct?

Tell us more.

Jim: The Flora of China has three species but I can't read the Chinese
to see how they differ. I have in my box to take home tonight what the
collector (Henk v.d. Werff) thinks are two distinct species that he
collected in Vietnam recently. I will see.

C.Y.Wu & H.Li in Flora Reipublicae Popularis Sinicae 13(2) accept,
besides A. calamus and A. gramineus, both A. tatarinowii SCHOTT in
Oest. Bot. Zeitschr.9:101 (1859) and A. rumphianus S.Y.HU in Dansk
Bot. Arkiv 23:416 (1968). A. tatarinowii was named for the collector
A. A. Tatarinov, see BRETSCHNEIDER, History of European Botanical
Discoveries in China (St. Petersburg, 1898) pp.559-569.
