If you thought aroid taxonomy is in a shambles, try
Aspidistra. For this reason, we started our on-line Aspidistra
study gallery. Although it's not complete yet, it will eventually contain
images of our entire collection of 105 Aspidistra species and cultivars.
We are fortunate to work with several European taxonomists, most
notably Dr. H.J. Tillich, who are assisting us in naming new species
at an amazing rate. I hope this helps.

Almost all of what is sold and grown in cultivation as Aspidistra
elatior 'Milky Way' or Aspidistra lurida 'Milky Way' is actually
Aspidistra lurida 'Ginga' ("Ginga' is Japanese for Galaxy). This
cultivar only has spots. The true Milky Way is rare and has spots AND stripes
and is Aspidistra lurida 'Amanogawa' (Japanese for Milky Way).
