Philodendron elegans is smaller in all respects than P. radiatum and
since I have not personally collected this thing in South America I am not
certain of is validity. We have collections of it from Colombia. Valle,
Antioquia, Quindio, occurring from 750 to 2030 m. Most collections are from
I have seen the type of P. angustisectum and it is definitely P.
radiatum. Before I saw the type of P. angustisectum I did for a time
determine some specimens of P. tortum as P. angustisectum.

Have you collected wild Philodendron elegans? As far as I known, it was
only an horticultural misfit, like those lots of species we will never find
again in the field. And what about P. angustissectum? Most material I have
seen identified as P. angustisectum was proven to be P. tortum, so I have
just realized that I donīt know a true P. angustissectum.
