Hi Guy et al.,

>To my knowledge, today, this species "pangii" is not in cultivation in t=he

Unless the distribution is much greater than I am aware of this should be
the case.  This is why the trip to Dulongjiang this year is so important.
The area will be opened up by a new bitumen road in about 18 months.
Li Heng discovered a number of new species in the area in 1990.  Quite a =few
still haven't been described. I have seen her slide collection which show=s
many of these.  I tried to get copies of the slides but it all proved too
hard!!  Will try again this year.

I will ask, but not before I see Li Heng at the Monocot II conference in
Sydney.  The painting that I photographed was one of a series that will
probably be used in a monograph of the genus.  It includes many species n=ot
known in cultivation like: dahiense, dulongense, pangii, calcareum,
rhombiforme, clavatum, sinii and rhizomatum.  I was allowed to photograph
themstrictly on the basis that I do not publish them in any way.  I would
love to put them on the web and will do so as soon as I am given the OK.
