  RE: [Aroid-l] Arum lily (reed) frog

Title: Arum lily (reed) frog

The reference I gave in my book Aroids –
Plants of the Arum Family is Whitfield, P., ed. 1984. Longman Illustrated
Animal Encyclopaedia. I don’t have anything more scientific.
As a matter of interest, when peering into the open spathe of a Typhonodorum
inflorescence in Madagascar
recently, I saw a perfectly camouflaged yellow and white frog nestled between
the white spathe and yellow spadix – obviously a different species from
the one in S Africa but suggesting that this topic
might indeed be an interesting piece of research.

Hope this helps. Would be interested
to hear if you uncover more info, as after plants (and aroids in particular),
my main interest is amphibians.
