    I am writing from the National Capital Poison Center in Washington, DC. We would like to use the photo above in our free app, webPOISONCONTROL, that provides expert, automated guidance for poisonings.

    The photo would allow users to verify their exposure if they were to ingest an aspidistra seed. You can learn more about the tool at Please let me know whether we may use this image and how to credit you.

    Thank you!
