not believe that it and the P. alternans that I received from Leland are
Tom, thanks so much for the plate. I've added it to
find it interesting Schott's plate does not appear to match your field notes
on P. crassinervium or Mauro Peixoto's photo. I have three
questions. Is Scott's drawing applicable to P. alternans or P.
lanceolatum? And more important in my mind, could Schott
have described something that no longer exists in the forests of Brazil?
Or, is it possible P. alternans is truly a species since it is more
often epiphytic as well as pendent while P. crassinervium is primarily
terrestrial? The plants in my own collection appear to be different and
Eduardo and Marcus have both said privately they are not likely to be the same
plant species. In addition, notes and photos I've added to the page from
Leland Miyano also at least appear to indicate they may not be the same
Input from any of our experts would be most helpful. And
by the way, I've copied this privately to all mentioned in this note so if any

Thanks as always!
