T. divaricatum is a synonym of T. roxburghii, not T. blumei. However,
the name T. divaricatum has also been extensively misapplied to plants
of T. blumei.

T. roxburghii and T. blumei can be told apart by the form of the
neuter organs above the female zone of the spadix: claw-like and
downward-pointing in T. roxburghii and thread-like and curly in T.

T. giraldii and T. giganteum var. giraldii have been treated as synonyms of T.
giganteum in the last revision of this genus (Sriboonma et al., J. Fac. Sci.
Univ. Tokyo Sect. III, 15: 255-313 (1994)).
