Amorphophallus from Madagascar - identity request

  • Subject: Amorphophallus from Madagascar - identity request
  • From: "Brian O'Brien" <bobrien@gustavus.edu>

Hello All,
   I bought an unidentified Madagascan Amorphophallus species in 2001 from the Huntington Botanical Garden's International Succulent Introductions program (it's not a succulent, but interesting non-succulents sometimes appear in the offerings).  The plant has since flowered.  I have a request in to the Huntington with regard to whether the species has been formally described, and thought that it would be good to send the same request to aroid-l.

Here's the relevant information, via my Flickr sites:

corm with label that contains detailed collection locality information:  http://www.flickr.com/photos/rose_oxide/3439150285/

entire inflorescence, with HBG tag:  http://www.flickr.com/photos/aeranthes/3692522882/

If you have any information about this interesting plant, I would greatly appreciate it if you would post it on aroid-l and/or forward it to me.
