If we're stretching Africa then should include Arisarum vulgare, A. simorrhinum, Eminium spiculatum, and Biarum olivieri.
Being tediously pedantic, the Moroccan Arum hygrophilum is a separate species (as yet unpublished: Arum maurum (Braun-Blanq. & Maire) comb. ined.

As part of Africa is on the Mediterranean, I would think that Arum occurring in Morocco (Arum hygrophillum Boiss & Arum italicum Miller) and Libya (Arum cyrenaicum Hruby) might be included in your list of African aroids.

Subject: [Aroid-l] African aroids?
Hello again, fellow aroiders,
I have been wondering today about African aroids. Those of us who grow tropical aroids will be aware of the genera of the American tropics, i.e. Caladium, Xanthosoma, Philodendron, Anthurium, Monstera, Spathiphyllum, Dieffenbachia, et al.; and the Southeast Asian genera, Epipremnum, Aglaonema, Colocasia, Alocasia, Cyrtosperma, and most of the Amorphs. But Africa seems almost like the Lost Continent. Other than Zantedeschia and some of the Amorphs, what African genera are widely known in cultivation? The biodiversity of Africa has long fascinated me, but it seems like the most difficult continent to find out much about. Who here grows African aroids besides Zantedeschia and Amorphs?
