Re: [aroid-l]


P. angustisectum is a synonym of P. radiatum, not P. elegans.

Hello Eduardo!           Thank you for the answers! I'll read with much
interest your article"bipinnatifidum"...      About Philo pinnatilobum:you
can find a picture in Exotica,and I have seen a very similar plant (so
called there ),at the Belgian Botanical Garden:well-named or not?... I
presume you mean   Phil  angustisectum is a synonym of elegans(instead of
radiatum?)... At any rate:thank you very much...Daniel ARNOULD       Belgium

Dear Arnould,

    A few answers for your questions:

1. Yes, Philodendron melanochrysum is the same thing as P. andreanum. They 
were described for the same plant, adult and yong. As far as I remember, P. 
melanochrysum is the name to be used.

2. I checked the only reminescent of Koch´s material of Philodendron selloum

and it is the same as P. bipinnatifidum, as Mayo noted almost 10 years ago. 
However, there are two species commonly traded as P. bipinnatifidum, that 
are P. lundii and P. mello-barretoanum. There will be an article I wrote on 
this subject (P. bipinnatifidum complex) for the forthcoming Aroideana.

3. It is possible that P. radiatum and P. elegans are the same thing. I 
think Tom Croat already checked on it before. (Any commnets, Tom). The other

two species (P. tortum and P. distantilobum) are well distinct and 
recongizable. I have not seen P. pinnatilobum.

                          I hope it helps,
