AMORPHOPHALLUS PROTOLOGUES

Dear Amorphophallus lovers,

The species list below is compiled from Aroid.org, araceae.e-monocot.org, theplantlist.org, and tropicos.org. The collection of protologues were made possible by invaluable helps from fellow Aroiders : Stephen Jackson, Cyrille Claudel, Elisabeth Boot, Alan Galloway, Livingstone Zhou, Micha G. Devi and Sofi Mursidawati. Click any link on each species and it will bring you the original publication used to describe that species. I hope this website can truly help phalloiders to learn more about each species in more detail.

Cheers,

Elbert.
