Howdy All,

I am trying to find out about Pinellia peltata and am not having much luck.
A google search turns up one document in chinese that "may" contain P.
peltata, but other than that nothing.

The AEG Document Aroid069.pdf confirms that there is a Pinellia peltata
(and it is also mentioned on "The Arisaema Page" website) but there is no
mention of description or anything like that.  I even downloaded the "KEY
Flora of China" AEG Document in case it was in there, but discovered it was
purely Arisaema.

So.... I am not sure where to go from here.  Does anyone have information
on this species?  What are it's distinguishing features?  Does anyone have
a photo of it (leaves and/or flowers etc)?

Any information or pointers would be greatly appreciated.
