Very interesting Evan, thanks for that find; I'm always amazed at how large species are still being discovered in Madagascar.

The new species is not yet in IPNI, or the Amorphophallus pages at aroids.org.

This link to the University of Utah indicates, as of Feb. 7, 2012, Walhert with Wilbert Hetterscheid are co-authoring a paper about A. pierrieri.

Yes, apparently the name is not yet published, so its use is provisional.

Sure is a harsh place it lives in, right?

The photos sure make it look harsh and barren. They noted some plants were shared with others. Hopefully we'll be seeing them in Botanical Gardens.

Another new Amorphophallus species discovered in the Philippines (noted on Aroid-L, Hairy scary). This one with a hairy spadix.
Amorphophallus natolii.

Thanks LariAnn. This was a fun one. I didn't know anything about the "hairy" aroids. Some of them, like T. hirsutum, don't seem any hairier than S. venosum.

My Elephant Yam Amorphophallus paenonifolius is about to flower. Is this where I should post it when it unfolds?

Looks good Glen. Folk will definitely check in to see your pics. Thumbs up Are you able to leave in ground year round? I'm a relative newbie to Amorphs but they look to be another addiction. Cheers.

What the herb growing around it?

Evan, yes I can leave it in the ground all year. However, saying that, I used to have two others but I haven't found them in recent times so they might have died. This one has gone from strength to strength in the last three years. The herb around it is a native ground cover whose name escapes me at the moment. This is the bud today (10.5" 26cm). There is a smaller plant shooting next to it that I will move this year. The main plant will not emerge until the flower is finished in December if the previous flowering can be gone by.

When will smellovision arrive? nodding Great pics Glen. Must be a large tuber for the pup to be so far away. Thanks for adding the pic to the database.

Get yer gas mask ready, Gleni. There's a piece of dead meat lurking in there!

Very cool to see, though.

Reminds me of 60's cliff-hangers. The suspense! Producing such a stinker bloom I wonder how folks decided it would make good eating?

Lol. You wouldn't believe it I have lost my sense of smell for 3 weeks now. I'm praying it will remain gone for the final unfolding.
Lots of thunderstorms and hail at the moment. I have to run and cover it so you will see the dénouement.

Evan, Blue-tonged Lizard Tiliqua scincoides. It is a broad, very large skink and a live-bearer. The tongue is protruded in a threat display. This one is resident in my garden. One of those wonderful reptiles that eats snails!!

Some of the threat display images are downright comical Glen. Crunch slurp must be a satisfying sound for a gardener. You're area looks like a great mix of development and reserves and a wonderful natural harbor.
