Guanghua: I would guess that the best authority for Zantedeshia would
be Yashica Singh from South Africa. She gave a nice paper on the genus
at the VI International Aroid Conference in Kunming. I do not know if
she has internet capabilities but she lives where the genus occurs and
has published on Zantedeshia. She must have nice photos. I could
contact her if you would like to see what she could do.
