Re: Zambian aroid


Dear Rogan,

Your aroid would be Amorphophallus swynnertonii or A. richardsii. Trouble is
that the differences between the two are only seen in the details of the
naughty bits (number of locules per ovary and stuff like that). You may wish
to send me (privately) the exact locality of origin, which may help.

The strange lobing of the spathe top is erratic and is not a stable
character.

Cheers,
Wilbert
