I have had an offer from a collector in the netherlands (Hans Avelink) for
S. floribundum as well as two undefined species (ID'll be tricky, no?). I
know that there are several institutions within the UK that have a number of
Spath species - I'm trying to "cultivate" a relationship with them!

Thanks for your message, and I'll keep looking and hoping.
