unknown aroid ID


Dear All,

    I'd like to try the ID of the unknown aroid submitted by Paul Resslar 
(n#126). To me, it is Xanthosoma mexicanum Liebm. from Mexico and 
Guatemala. Some could name it X. pilosum Koch (from Costa Rica and 
Colombia), but I consider these species as synonimous. Julius has 
identificated it as X. pubescens Poepp., a species from northern South 
America, but the true X. pubescens has more lateral ribs (10-18), while 
X.mexicanum has 5 or 6. 

Best Wishes, 

Eduardo.
