Subject: Request for seeds of Aroid genera needed for study of acids of seed lipids

Dear Aroid-l ers.
I am now at the stage of having analyzed the seed of at least one species of each of 88 genera of Araceae. I reported on some of this work at the recent IAS Symposium in Sarawak. In order to complete this study I still need seed of several genera.
Below are four lists giving the names of the genera still needed.

List Number 1. Genera of traditional Araceae of which I have not had any seed.
Bognera Hottarum
Carlephyton Phymatarum
Colletogyne Protarum
Furtadoa Pycnospatha
Gearum Zomicarpella

List Number 2. Genera of Duck Weeds, the newly designated Araceae of which I haven't had seed
Lemna Wolffia
Spirodella Wolfiella

List Number 3. Three genera from which additional species are needed.
Typhonium Any species except diversifolium, giganteum, horsfieldii, roxburghii, trilobatum, venosum
Biarum Any species except davisii, dispar, tenuifolium
Theriophonum Any species except miniatum

List Number 4. Genera which should be rechecked.
Aridarum Dieffenbachia
Bucephalandra Chlorospatha
Callopsis Pedicellarum

Three or four (3 or 4) seeds of each species is usually sufficient for one analysis. Because the seeds of the Duck Weeds are so small, it may take considerably more seed. I would hope that 10 to 20 seeds might be sufficient.
While it is nice to work with fresh seed, viable seed is not necessary. I have successfully analyzed seed up to 75 years old from herbarium sheets. What is necessary is that the seed be reasonably mature.
If you can help sometime in the coming months, please e-mail me to so indicate, and then e-mail me at the time the seed is to be sent. Thanks for your help.
