Dear Marcus:

What is your cut off for early
authors? Would someone like Hemsley be important. He worked early in Central America. I realize that most of the earliest
collections were from the West Indies but in South America
there were the early explorers like Spruce, Humbodlt, Sesse & Mocino and
others. Actually except to Poeppig few species of Araceae were described. What
about Kunth. Lord, he described more than anyone else even if he did not know anything
about Araceae.

All the best,
