> If anyone has seeds of either, or both, of the above named
> Typhonium species, or knows of someone who might, please get in touch
> with me. The seeds can be fresh or taken from a dry herbarium specimen
> and can be up to 75 years old. I may be able to get by with only 2 - 3
> seeds of each.
> They are needed to confirm chemical relationships in this part of
> the genus Typhonium. In 2000 in an article in Aroideana, Hetterscheid
> and Boyce transferred these two species from Sauromatum to Typhonium
> while presenting evidence for the move. They also presented evidence
> that these species along with a small group of other Typhoniums are
> different --- that Typhonium is paraphyletic.
> My chemical evidence supports this grouping except that I have
> never been able to find any seeds of the two above mentioned species to
> ascertain that this same chemical difference exists throughout the entire
> small group.
> Please help if you can, otherwise I must just make an assumption
> that they do in fact behave as their co-species, as reported by
> Hetterscheid and Boyce.
