A NOTE ABOUT SCLEROPYRUM PENTANDRUM. I was informed by Boonying Tubtim, faculty of pharmacy at Chiang Mai University in Thailand, that there are reports of people who died from eating this plant, mistakenly thinking it was Melientha suavis (Opiliaceae).  Jill Macklin provided information she gleaned from herbarium labels that the flowers of S. aurantiacum are eaten in New Guinea, so the toxic components may not be present in all species of Scleropyrum.

Staufferia
