Thanks for the notification of the FOC Aroid treatment, which
represents a huge amount of hard work...we all thank the authors. Now,
the questions begin.
Why was Colocasia antiquorum raised to species status from C.
esculenta...I've always been troubled by it being lumped with C.
esculenta. Also curious about the subsuming of C. heterochroma into C.
fallax. I see this also as logical, but am curious to hear more about
what led to these changes. Also, the window of flowering time for
Colocasia gigantea seems a bit short/early at
I'm glad to see the return of Sauromatum venosum, but can you
talk more about the move of Typhonium giganteum (which does seem more
sauromatum-like), and the other species that moved from typhonium to
