Most strange since the ploidy is different in ssp. triphyllum than in
ssp. pusillum and ssp. stewardsonii.
In fact, the latter is so different that Roy suspects it's nearly another

Since ssp. triphyllum probably does not cross with either of the other
two, it can hardly be in the same group unless you are a mega-lumper. In
that case, why not just Arisaema and forget the species altogether.

Perhaps there just isn't room to do justice to subspecies of odd plants
like Arisaema.
