RE: Ulearum? Did I imagine the post?

Dear Julius,

   Bognera used to be Ulearum too. Michael Madison described it as 
Ulearum reconditum, but he told it was quite different from U. 
sagittatum. Later, Mayo and Nicolson created the genus Bognera to 
place it. Well about Spathicarpella, I think you are thinking on 
Zomicarpella, a marvelous genus from western Brazilian Amazonia. I almost 
get crazy for these micro aroids too. 

Best wishes,
