  [Aroid-l] Xanthosoma names .
From: mickpascall at hotmail.com (Michael Pascall) on 2008.02.12 at 04:06:36(17064)
I have found a list of names compiled by the University of Melbourne in Victoria , Australia .


They have used information from GRIN/NPGS , buit the lists differ slightly .


One species I am interested in , as I am growing it .. is what has been known as
Xanthosoma jacquinii 'lineatum' , it is missing from the GRIN database and is supposed to be a syn. for X.undipes and X.sagittifolium on the other database .
Also in cultivation in Australia is X.blandum , I found the name in the great book ;
'The Tropical Plants of R.Burle Marx' it is listed as a synonym of X.poeppigii .

Any one disagree with these lists ?
