Is there a reason for it being named S, vermitoxicus?
Like many Aroids, this one is also very toxic, the juice from the tuber is
said to be used by natives to kill maggots, and a warning has been given to
handle the dormant tuber (which is covered with a white 'bloom' of crystals)
with gloves. Eduardo Goncalves from Brazil, an expert on the group,
posted a most interesting letter concerning this South American group of
tuberous Aroids a while ago, perhaps we can ask him 'pretty please' to
repeat it, as many may have missed it.
My next trip 'down South' will produce for you a wild-collected Spath.
Keep up the wonderful work, it is a breath of fresh air!!
