Didn't we have this conversation before? The Aroid-L archives could tell you. Is there anyone who can answer my original question?

Jason, I cannot help you in this regard but wonder if you could tell me the meaning of the name ?seguine?.  It is of interest to me because in Grenada where I live and where Dieffenbachia seguine occurs, the local name for this plant is ?siggin?. At least, that is how it is pronounced.

Subject: [Aroid-l] Dieffenbachia seguine



Dear aroiders,



In a couple of months, I plan to go once again to the Dominican Republic, where Dieffenbachia seguine is common. Unfortunately, my search for primary literature on this species turns up almost entirely papers having to do with the species in cultivation, little if anything on its life in its natural habitat. Does anyone know where I can find out about its life history, natural history, ecology, and so forth?

I believe ?Seguin? was probably the name of the original collector.

Very possibly but is he mentioned anywhere as a collector? ( There was a Juan Seguin who took part in the Texas revolution.)  It is remarkable that a Spanish collector?s name would have become the common name for a plant in an island with no Spanish history whatsoever. The pronunciation has been retained almost unchanged, in a French creole- speaking island.
