[Aroid-l] Update on Philippine Alocasias

Hello everyone,

I thought Alocasia enthusiasts would like to hear the latest updates on Philippine Alocasias based on research being conducted by Melanie Medecilo, whom some of you have met.

1. She is now describing the Bat Alocasia which she will name A. advinculae.
2. She found A. 'Sarian' in habitat in the Sierra Madre in northeastern Luzon. Together with other findings, this indicates that A. 'Sarian' is a species, which she will describe soon.
3. She saw several species in habitat, including A. sanderiana in Bukidnon province in northern Mindanao.
4. She is studying a population of the true A. atropurpurea in Bontoc in Northern Luzon. We will soon find out more about this little-known species.
5. She found several Alocasias that she considers to be new species. She is now conducting DNA and palynological studies to confirm her suspicions.
