Hi Ron,

Been having a hectic time, but probably not as hectic as yours.

The aroid genus that I have the most species of right now is the
Amorphophallus, courtesy of Alan, Wilbert, and Ron, plus a few natives I
have picked up here and there. However, I wouldn't say I specialized in it.

Next genus in number of species/varieties is the Alocasia, interest of
which prompted me to join the Alocasia-only list and to which I contribute
once in a while. Again, not specialized.

Then come, in no particular order, Aglaonema, Schismatoglottis, Homalomena,
Caladium, Raphidophora, Anthurium, Philodendron, Syngonium, Dieffenbachia,
Epipremnum, Scindapsus, Xanthosoma, Zantedeschia, Typhonium, Taccarum,
Colocasia, Dracontium, Hapaline, Pseudodracontium, Pycnospatha,
Cyrtosperma, and, of course, Spathiphyllum, all of which I have from one to
a few species/varieties of. As you can see, I am a jack-of-all-trade when
it comes to aroids.

I had been thinking of joining the IAS, but on my first tries joining
on-line last year, I found some difficulties, so I have procrastinated. I
guess I'll give it another try this time.

Re Asian Spaths, I am under the impression there is none here, although in
a recent field trip I saw feral ones. I just shrugged them off as being
naturalized, perhaps introduced a long time ago. Or perhaps, it's a case of
mistaken identity?! I'll be glad to help in whatever way I can.
