Dear Marak: I believfe that Linnaeus
did recognize the Araceae but he recognized only 4 genera, as I recall they
were Pothos, Dracontium and Calla plus one other genus. The genera were very
artificial and later Schott and others added many more genera, like
Anthurium. All the earliest Anthurium species were described in Pothos.
