Guanghua:  I would guess that the best authority for Zantedeshia would
be Yashica Singh from South Africa.  She gave a nice paper on the genus
at the VI International Aroid Conference in Kunming.  I do not know if
she has internet capabilities but she lives where the genus occurs and
has published on Zantedeshia.  She must have nice photos.  I could
contact her if you would like to see what she could do.
