Donna, Who is the author of A. luxurians and when was it described. I am
familiar with Cirino's true splendidum. A. corrugatum Sodiro is a very high
altitude plant with fairly long internodes. These long internodes easily
seperate A. luxurians and A. splendidum from A. corrigatum.

The plant shown in Exotica and in one of the past Aroideanas which is
labeled A. corrigatum are not A. corrigatum. I do not know of a published
photo of the true A. corrigatum.
