citation for P. cochinchinensis Wright is merely to a list of seeds recei=ved
from "Siagon, Cochin, China."  It gives as a synonym for this species Ari=saema
cochinchinensis Blume, changes the genus to Pinellia, credits W.F.Wright,=but
gives no citation.  Is this a valid citation?

Does anyone know of sources for these other species?

Kaichen is offering Pinellia integrifolia on their '98 list. Of course, l=ast
year they offered both it and P. peltata, but, as far as I know, no one e=ver
received either.

The other two are new names to me, but fornicata certainly sounds interes=ting.
