In case you haven't seen the latest issue of Aroideana, S. R. Yadav
describes another new species from India. This is the second one he and
K.S. Patil have discovered.

A. sivadasanii Yadav, Patil, & Janarthanam

Yadav, S.R., Patil, K.S. and Janarthanam, M.K. 1998. A New Species of
Arisaema (Araceae) From Western Ghats of Southern India, Aroideana,

The new species closely resembles A. neglectum, A. sahydrica, and A.
tortuosum which grow side-by-side with it in shady forrest borders. It
differs in having a short thick spadix appendage that projects only
slightly from the spathe. The species is named for Dr. M. Sivadasan, an
expert on southern Indian orchids.
