Hello Peter,

I'm confused. Isn't Colocasia antiquorum SCHOTT a valid species? At least in Li Heng's and your treatment in the Flora of China it is.

Hi Marek


Neither. Both are simply Colocasia esculenta, as per our previous correspondence.

Which name is the proper one?

Colocasia esculenta var. antiquorum (Schott) C.E. Hubb. & Rehder


Colocasia antiquorum Schott


On the web (IAS, Tropicos, IPNI, CATE) I can find both combinations

and I really don't know which one should be used.
