The list of Araceae published in 1906 by A. A. PULLE in his “Enumeration of the Vascular Plants known from Surinam” comprises 39 species belonging to 14 genera, the largest genera being Anthurium with 7 species and Philodendron with 12 species. It was found that one of these 39 species was included by mistake, for the specimen Wullschlaegel n. 1764, which is the type of Spathiphyllum blandum Schott, was erroneously assumed to have been collected in Suriname. Already in 1908 TRESLING had collected a species that was not listed by PULLE, viz. Dieffenbachia picta (Lodd.) Schott.
