Acorus calamus L.

Acorus calamus L.

Placement status: name or taxon excluded (unspecific) (An old unsubstantiated record never confirmed later and probably incorrect (Halácsy 1904: 295). According to Grieve (1995), the 'Calamus aromaticus' of the Ancients is thought by some to be a plant belonging to the Gentian family, though the description of the plant 'Acoron,' given as a native of Colchis, Galatia, Pontus and Crete by Dioscorides and Pliny, seems to refer to the Sweet Flag, A. calamus.)
