Thanks to those that checked up on Acorus tatarinowii for
Looking in the Flora of China by Hen Li,  A. gramineus has
leaves less than 6mm and  A. tatarinowii has leaves greater
than 7mm. Is the width of a leaf a valid justification to name a
species even if all else is the same?  Growing conditions can
have a great effect on the size of a plant.
