  Re: Acorus tatorinowii continued

Dear Aroid-L;
Did a quick check through my Chinese books and find that The
"Iconographia ..." (a sort of reader's digest condensed Flora of China)
calls A. tatorinowii a synonym of A. gramineus.
A Dictionary of Chinese Flora list Acorus with four species, but
only discusses the 2 in China (gramineus and calamus).

A look at inventories shows A. tatorinowii in the collections of
the Hangzhou and Nanjing Botanical Gardens. With MBG's close ties to
Nanjing , Tom C. could snap up a plant in moments, I'd bet.

The truth is out there.
