The determining factor that a plant is/is not an aroid is the presence of a
spathe and a spadix in the inflorescence. Some of the most common genera
of Araceae are Anthurium, Philodendron, Aglaonema, Spathiphyllum and
'Pothos' or Epipremnum. This can be explored further by going to the IAS
Web Site at . Follow the links from "Araceae"
and click on the 'Genera of Araceae", there you will find a complete
listing, many with pictures.

Hope this helps. Also, I am following this message with some information
regarding the International Aroid Society.
