Re: New aroid in western Australia?

Thank you for bringing this to our attention.
It appears to be an aroid that I saw in Kununurra in 1987 when I worked 
there.it appeared to be a Typhonium.There were some new species 
described at the time by Alistair Hay.It may already be described.It 
grew in thje loamy soil and only appeared when the wet arrived.It grew 
with a native Tacca which the aboriginal people used as a bush 
potato.They had no recorded use of the Typhonium.
