Dear Marek,

I don´t know if something changed in the last five minutes, but unless all phylogenetic methods are wrong, the "Lemnaceae" are much more deeply embedded within the Araceae than Anthurium! If Lemnaceae as so is a accepted family, you have to take Anthurium, Spathiphyllum and Monstera out of the Araceae. For those that have been "out of the business" for the last years, many families have disappeared (e.g. Asclepiadaceae is now in Apocynaceae; Bombacaceae is now in Malvaceae; Taccaceae is now in Dioscoreaceae). Other are almost there, such as Amaryllidaceae (to be swallowed by the Alliaceae). Sad but true...

Best wishes,

Eduardo.

I am afraid you are dead wrong, it is just the other way around!! All
Lemnaceae are now Araceae, unless something changed no later than a month
ago.

Wilbert

Lemna is no longer in the Araceae. It belongs to Lemnaceae.

The "scum" is actually a couple of really neat aroids. The tiny (actually
the smallest flowering plant) Wolffia can be identified along with the
larger Lemna by checking into Landolt's Lemnaceae, Fl. North America 22:
143-153. Oxford University Press (2000).
