Is there anyone out there in the Aroid World that has living material of
Xanthosoma striatipes? It is widespread in eastern South America from
Venezuela to Paraguay. My student Jane Whitehill needs only a peice of
leaf to use in molecular studies in the Colocasioideae and she could send
a small packet of silica gel in which to dry the material. I would really
appreciate it if anyone could help us out in this regard.
