Just now, Blumea 46(2) has appeared, featuring the official publication of a
number of Amorphophallus species, some of which have already been released
to you via my annual distribution. Just for ye all to know, the following
names are now official:
A. amygdaloides Hett. & M. Sizemore
A. atrorubens Hett. & M. Sizemore
A. boyceanus Hett.
A. brachyphyllus Hett.
A. dzui Hett.
A. longicomus Hett. & Serebryanyi
A. obscurus Hett. & M. Sizemore
A. ochroleucus Hett. & V.D. Nguyen
A. polyanthus Hett. & M. Sizemore
A. saururus Hett. A. scutatus Hett. & T.C. Chapman
A. sizemoreae Hett.
A. symonianus Hett. & M. Sizemore
A. synandrifer Hett. & V.D. Nguyen
A. tinekeae Hett. & A. Vogel
A. venustus Hett., A. hay & J. Mood
Simultaneously I had to say goodbye to a few existing names, that I
synonimised with others:
A. arnautovii & A. pingbianensis both now synonyms of A. coaetaneus
A. erubescens now under A. muelleri
A. odoratus & A. mellii now under A. dunnii
A. pachystylis now under A. krausei
I guess you all who have A. odoratus just LOOOOOOOOVE this................
Question: I have had no contact whatsoever with Tim Chapman for several
years, since he suddenly seemed to disappear from our mists. Am. scutatus is
published with his authorship too, as i had promised him long ago. Could
anyone who has contact with him, mention this? Thanks. Or maybe tell me how
I can find him again.
