This species is certainly P. cordatum. The name Angra dos Reis refers to the city that is in the southern coastal state of Rio de Janeiro, where the species is very common.
> I have a Philodendron for so many years I can?t remember where I got it from. I have assumed it to be the same as the plant illustrated in Exotica under the name ?Angra dos Reis?, a south Brazilian species. This plant is now thought to be identical to Philodendron cordatum.
> ?Angra dos Reis? means ?King?s Cove? in Portuguese and is the name of a coastal town southwest of
Rio de Janeiro.
> Unlike the specimens belonging to Steve and Brian (see Steve?s page on P. cordatum) http://www.exoticrainforest.com/Philodendron%20cordatum%20pc.html , mine has red spots on the centre vein of the upper surface of the leaf. Mine has yet to develop 100% adult form, because it has lain neglected in a pot for decades. This is no longer the case !
