Hi Erin,

In Anch. difformis thinner longer and thicker shorter rhizomes are found
indeed but I do not know if they correlate exactly with morphological

In order to assess of you have the real var. welwitschii, pictures of the
naughty bits inside the spathe are necessary (should have a very short
style). It is a tad questionable of var. welwitschii is really not just the
other end of a continuous chain of variation or, the opposite, is a good
species in its own right. Not much known about Anchomanes variation in fact!
