  [Aroid-l] What's a Cataphyll?
From: jonathan.ertelt at vanderbilt.edu (Jonathan Ertelt) on 2007.11.26 at 21:34:55(16741)
D. Swartz. Collegiate Dictionary of Botany. 1971. cataphyll - a
scale-like leaf as found in buds, cotyledons, rhyzomes, etc.; any
rudimentary scale-like leaf which precedes the foliage leaf; the
German Niederblatter, an underleaf; a leaf present at the beginning
of growth.

Hope this helps.
