  Changing names...
From: Albert Huntington <amasakih at gmail.com> on 2016.10.24 at 16:04:02(23696)

I posted this on facebook last week, but I figure it may be of interest to those on Aroid-L as well:

In the wake of some recent discussion about the state of a few names -
Arum pictum vs Gymnomesium pictum and Xanthosoma/Caladium lindenii vs Phyllotaenium lindenii, for instance, I've made a page which lays out the current state of affairs regarding name changes of at least some of our beloved plants and provides links to some papers.

Please refer to http://www.aroid.org/genera/changes/ for all your naming needs. You might never be actually *right*, but it will be more difficult for people to prove you *wrong*.

Dear Albert:

Thanks for unearthing all these important changes, some of which I was unaware of. I have Carla now trying to affect the changes necessary in Tropicos to correct our records.

Thank you, Albert!

Well done.
