I see that you, like myself, have been bitten by the Pseudohydrosme 'bug'!!!
It is found only in a small area of Gabon, W. Africa in rain forest, and
only about 5
or 6 specimens have ever been collected, one for Engler long ago, then two
by Josef Bogner which appear in early Aroideana mags., then two or three by
friends of Wilbert Hetterscheid (who grows it and who may have photos), in
the last few years. There is a second species, P. buettneri, also said to
be from Gabon which is only known from the type illustration of a spadix, it
has never been re-collected. Nice illustrations and a color photo in TGOA,
the new BIG book on Aroids by Mayo, Bogner and Boyce.
