What is this?

A passion fruit, Passiflora caerulea probably. Not sure about the edibility, they're not the same species as those in the SMs or in passion fruit ice cream 

I got lucky last night...

That looks more like Dracunculus vulgaris.

Is that a picture of your plant?

Arum maculatum is the native plant known as Jack in the pulpit, Lords and Ladies and numerous others.

What I know as Arum lily is Zantedeschia aethiopica.

The latest pictures aren't either of those.

I wonder what sort Alan has. 2 foot tall and doesn't set seed. That's not Symphytum officinalis is it

Birds smell larvae in trees

Are they smelling the larvae or the infested trees? Removing the larvae, if you could find them all, would leave a scent behind. How do scientists work out  the source of the scent?
