Dear Tony,

It is listed as a synonym of Z. pentlandii in Kew World Checklist ...

Z. pentlandii was described in Gartenflora ... I can check tomorrow if there is a plate with the description if you are interested ...

With best regards,

In researching some of the new fancy flowered callas, many are being 
patented as selections or hybrids of Z. sprengeri.  I found this name 
originating in the Kew Bulletin in 1924, but not much else.  Any ideas 
if this is a valid species, and if so, where has it been hiding?  Any 
input would be most appreciated.
