This account concerning the distribution of living or dried collections of Araceae should provide the reader with facts about where the better collections of Araceae are deposited. This information is important, because of the low rate of duplication of aroid collections, and the generally low rate of collection and poor preservation of specimens, resulting generally in few, relatively poorly preserved collections of any given species. This generally translates into need to borrow on a much broader basis for revisionary studies of Araceae. This survey should provide additional details about the locations of Araceae collections which are most likely to yield material of interest to the monographer or to the writers of floristic accounts.
