[Aroid-l] Seeds of Typhonium (Sauromatum) brevipe or gaoligongense

Dear Members,
         If anyone has seeds of either, or both, of the above named 
Typhonium species, or knows of someone who might, please get in touch with 
me.  The seeds can be fresh or taken from a dry herbarium specimen and can 
be up to 75 years old.
         They are needed to confirm chemical relationships in this part of 
the genus Typhonium.  In 2000 in an article in Aroideana, Hetterscheid and 
Boyce transferred these two species from Sauromatum to Typhonium while 
presenting evidence for the move.  They also presented evidence that these 
species along with a small group of other Typhoniums are different --- that 
Typhonium is paraphyletic.
         My chemical evidence supports this grouping except that I have 
never been able to find any seeds of the two above mentioned species to 
ascertain that this same chemical difference exists throughout the entire 
small group.
         Please help if you can, otherwise I must just make an assumption 
that they do in fact behave as their co-species, as reported by 
Hetterscheid and Boyce.
