Steve:  Certainly that is curious but remember if it is publshed by someone they could simply have given him credit for the name, such as I will be doing for Philodendron fibrosm Sodiro.  Hoewver even when I do this it will be called Sodiro ex Croat.

Thanks Tom.  I finally got the info right from several of the regulars on Aroid l.  Still, I'm lost as to how his name is associated with Alocasia x amazonica since he died more than 40 years before it came into existence.
