Re: Colocasia name


Hi David,
 
Yes, it is a valid NAME but it is NOT a good species - the typification was fouled up by Schott, who typified (certainly in error) on a Linnaeus specimen is is without question C. esculenta.
 
Mea culpa we fouled up in FoC. The DESCRIPTION in FoC is correct but the name is wrong. It should be called C. fontanesii.
 
Very best
 
Peter

Hello Peter,

I'm confused. Isn't Colocasia antiquorum SCHOTT a valid species? At least in Li Heng's and your treatment in the Flora of China it is.

Best,
David

Hi Marek

 

Neither. Both are simply Colocasia esculenta, as per our previous correspondence.

Subject: [Aroid-l] Colocasia name

 

Hello,

 

Which name is the proper one?

Colocasia esculenta var. antiquorum (Schott) C.E. Hubb. & Rehder

or

Colocasia antiquorum Schott

 

On the web (IAS, Tropicos, IPNI, CATE) I can find both combinations

and I really don't know which one should be used.

 

Best,

Marek Argent
