Dear Rob,
this has to be one of the funniest things I hear about bulbs !
Arum italicum is native (invasive) to all Italy from North to South. The one collected in Sicily is Arum italicum, no doubt. The other species present in Italy are : Arum apulum, endemic of Central Apulia, Arum  A.cylindraceum (the Italian population formerly described as A. lucanum ) scattered in the Southern Italy at altitude, Arum pictum endemic of Sardinia and Arum maculatum, in the Northern and Central Italy

Hi  Pieter,

I flipped  through  "The   Genus  Arum"  by  Peter  Boyce  ,which  
has  distribution maps , and  I  didnt  see  any Arum species  that  
grow in Sicily  .  It  appears  that  Arum italicum  is  not  native 
to  Italy  either.
