Most of these names seem to come from another Chinese nursery of which several
of the rhizomatous species names (calcareum and calcareum var., austro-yunnanense,
bannaensis) have turned out to be tropical species including the A. petelottii
that Guy Gusman has posted a message of on Arisaema-L and Aroid-L. Unless
you can provide the right growing conditions for these species, better keep
away from these names as they will not do well in a garden with cold and
wet winters. If my assumption is correct about the original source, A. du-bois-reymondiae
might be A. hunanense.

I know the original source of the A. barnesii but it is difficult to asses
its ID yet. If it's the source I assume it is then the plants do come from
S India but they are of subtropical origin and cannot be grown in a temperate

Hope this helps but if anyone has bought these plants, try to make pictures
of them and post the pix on the ID-page for everyone to see and give their
thoughts on, there might be indeed some jewels among them.

Bulbmeister's offerings do not match up with the Gusmans' revision and
include barnesii, calcareum,prazeri, and  some questionable names :
austro-yunnanense, bannaensis,     among others, but
>he list seems worth
investigating.  Who knows what jewels may turn up?     Adam Fikso, Glenview,
