[aroid-l] From Peru
Hi everybody in the list, let me introduce, my name is Jorge Lingán and I'm
very interested in the Araceae family. Actually I'm working my thesis
project to know the Araceae of Parque Nacional Yanachaga-Chemillen
(Pasco-Peru), with some annotations about pollinators of these impressive
I was at the peruvian forest (Tambopata-Madre de Dios), in the begining of
this year and I had collected samples of this family. I'm almost finishing
my field report and I have a doubt with a synonymy matter...is Philodendron
krukovii Gleason synonym of Philodendron chanchamayense Engler?
I have another question, maybe you could help me, I'd like to suscribe to
the Aroideana magazine but I don't have a credit card, I considered using a
friend card, but the subscription would be sent to his address and to his
name and not mine, is there any other option? is it possible to send cash
money? I'm very interested in Aroideana subscription I've read some
articles and they're very interesting.
Congratulations for all the list contributors, I'm learning a lot with the
discussions. I've to tell you that here in Peru the "malanga" is known as
"pituca" or "unkucha", depending if it's in the northern or southern (Cusco)
region of Perú respectively. They are really two or three Xanthosoma
species, I'm not sure ... but it is delicious! and I think it is a good
substitute of potato.
Congratulations once again and thanks for your contributions.
Kind regards for each.
