C. paradoxum was discribed in 1988 by S. J. Mayo and Josef Bogner in
"Willdenowia 18". It is from Colombia, S. America.
Let me know if you`d like a copy of the paper.
Do you or anyone out there know the origin of the name Caladium marmoratum;
it is illustrated on pg.189 of"Exotica International", Series 4, Vol.1 of
1985 (?). It has an almost peltate leaf blade, and is from Eastern Ecuador
and grows "wet".
