hello Peter,

good to hear about this, re. sorting out E. aureum.

oh, a question :
does 'wild-type' (non-cultivated, green) E. aureum have a restricted
distribution in Moorea - and are the wild populations doing well?

cheers
Eugene


p.s.
if it's no trouble, I'd be interested to see E. pinnatum synonym list,
please...
