Title: RE: [Aroid-l] Xanthosoma? Please help to ID

Dear Eduardo:
        Do Xanthosoma atrovirens and X. sagittifolium have the same blade with the posterior rib not at all naked?  Where is X. atrovirens native?


Tom

Dear Frank,

           In my opinion, it is a young Xanthosoma atrovirens. Probably it
has a completely orange flesh on tubers ("chubas"?) Xanthosoma atrovirens is
one of the most variable species in the genus. Completely green form are
also common.

                                                   Very best wishes,

                                                                    Eduardo.
