Your suggestion sounds fine. The Seedex chairman could assign the AEG
numbers and keep the cross reference to Chen Yi's numbers/names.  Still,
if a particular Chen Yi lot contains multiple species,
there'd be no way to handle it unless the AEG number was assigned using
both Chen Yi information
and the seed donor. So, for example, Chen Yi #24 (A. du-bois-reymondiae)
seed would ne
assigned AEG #36 (say) for my seed donation and #54 (say) for your seed
donation. When there's
unanimity that they are both A. engleri, This would be posted. But if
they are different, the
two names would be posted individually when determined. Does that sound

Growers of the seed would participate in the ID process by submitting
pictures to
Eric Gouda's Arisaema ID page and/or with careful descriptions of the
emerging seedlings
and, ultimately, the mature plants. These discussions would be part of

Craig, would this be manageable at the Seedex?

AEGers, what say you to this method of handling Chen Yi plant seeds?
