  [Aroid-l] The Many Faces of Taro
From: abri1973 at wp.pl (Marek Argent) on 2008.01.22 at 03:08:20(16982)

Hello Jason,

So here it's me again with this controversive stamp from Micronesia,
recently when I sent this to Aroid-L,
it was identified as Colocasia esculenta, according to the book by Deni Bown
where she wrote
that in the Oceania C. esculenta has not peltate leaves.
Now you put me in a different light explaining that the plant can be a
species of Cyrtosperma.
I haven't seen C. chamissonis, so I can't tell which of the plant is there
on the stamp.
Could you please help me, it's very important to me.
