The two papers to which you refer are both very lightweight and I would hardly call them research – they are simply reports that would seem well-suited to a Newsletter. Yes, they are in the format of Aroideana, but for no other reason than the Newsletter doesn’t really have a format but nonetheless these two pieces both needed a more formal structure. Neither was peer reviewed.
Actually, it’s not the first time a ‘research paper’ has appeared in the Newsletter - Fruits of Bakoa nakamotoi. Newslett. Int. Aroid Soc. 34(3): 6–7 (2012).
One reason that the Newsletter cannot be used for formal peer-reviewed research papers is that it lacks an ISSN.

I notice something new in the Newsletter: articles that follow the format of a journal publication. Is the Newsletter going to be considered a second venue for such research? Are these articles peer-reviewed, as those in Aroideana are?
