[Aroid-l] Scaring systematics...

Dear scared people,

Yes, and Ruscaceae is not even included in Liliales... It is in a different order, Asparagales!
And for those that want to hear about the "latest heretic things" (most not so latest)... Lemna and allies are aroids, Acorus is not an aroid and the family Araceae is now placed in the order Alismatales, together with most aquarium plants... And we have now two new aroid genera within the Spathicarpeae: Croatiella and Incarum...

Very best wishes,
