Great that you have this information to share with us, Dewey! I took my
info. (that there was but one species) directly from the best available
source, The Genera of Araceae, Peter Boyce is one of the authors, but the
book was most probably published before the mix up w/ the type and the
second larger species was discovered! This is the nice thing (to me
anyway!) about taxonomy and research, there is always more to be learned!
This is yet another example of the role us hobbyists plany in research, lots
of the important informatuion about these plants comes from just mere
growers like you and I !!! With our help the taxonomists will be in
good shape in 100 years! :--)
It is good that this second species (in fact the type species) and the
common second sp. is grown by you, and is available to those who would like
to purchase a plant!! I will be checking it out soon! Be well.
