Hello Neil!

[To 'a San Juan '---Your photo which you so kindly sent of the stem/rhizome
of P. stenolobum seems a PERFECT match for Dr. Goncalves` B+W photo of the
stem of P. stenolobum on Pg. 9, Fig. 8, of his article describing this
species in 'Aroideana Volume 25'.]

Good to hear your voice, mate! I`m so deep into this discussion (which I
really should back out of at this stage, and leave it to Dr. Goncalves and
Dr. Croat!!!) but your point about the old, 1871 Hooker illustration has
'tickled' my interest-bone, as the part that I love best about taxonomy is
all the detective work on investigating the history of a plant! (remind me
to tell you about my investigations 'back when' on Dracontium foecundum
Hook. and D. asperum K. Koch, fun fun fun!! By the way!!!--- Dr. Zhu`s
revision of the genus Dracontium has been published, it is in 'Annals of the
Missouri Bot. Garden 2004, Vol. 91, Number 4'!!!) I`ll reply below each of
your paragraphs (below) as is my want. HOPEFULLY Dr. Goncalves will ''jump
into'' the discussion with both feet, as he was the person who did the
actual research to decide that P. stenolobum was a new s pecies, different
to P. williamsii, and what P. williamsii really was/is!!

Note: this is a very old post, so no reply function is available.
