  Re: Acorus tatorinowii continued

Okay, here is the deal. Hope that I can help a little bit on the subject.
I am co-authoring the genus Acorus with Prof. Li Heng for the English
Flora of China. So far, I have seen quite a few specimens of the genus.
Prof. Li recorgnizes four species in China:

A. calamus
var. calamus
var. verus
A. tatarinowii
A. rumphianus
A. gramineus

Acorus tatarinowii stands out well from A. gramineus in the herbarium. Of
course, whenever I have an inflorescence. I do have problems to tell A.
tatarinowii from A. rumphianus. But I need to convince Prof. Li that they
should be the same. Cheers,
