Amorphophallus konjac was first described by Schott as Conophallus 
konjac in 1856 and then as Amorphophallus konjac by Koch in 1858.  The 
name Amorphophallus rivieri did not appear until 1870 giving Am. konjac 
priority.  You can find a complete list of synonyms at the World 
Checklist of Monocotyledons

I see many people refer to konjac as rivieri.

What is the story behind that?  Is rivieri an old name, or what?

Just curious....
