Re: [Aroid-l] Philodendron list

Dear Abrimaal,

Philodendron atabapoense is quite different from P. spiritus-sancti. I have collected both in the field and they have completely different ecologies, as well as completely different morphology. The only similar aspect is that leaves in young specimens of P. atabapoense have wine coloured surface bellow, as well as adult P. spiritus-sancti. Such aspect just disappears when the plants of P. atabapoense get older. Moreover, P. atabapoense is a widespread species from Northern South America (occurring from Venezuela to the Brazilian northern shore in Amapá state) whereas P. spiritus-sancti occurs in a very restricted area in Southeastern Brazil.

Very best wishes,

Philodendron 'Santa Leopoldina' is the most probably a synonymous name of Ph. atopaboense (if I wrote it correctly).

I can find no refernce to PHILODENDRONS espiritu sancti or santa leopoldina at the IAS site under ARACAEA That seems odd since much has been said and written about them. Actually the latters designation shoud be P. santa leopoldina4 being one of the originaal four collected. Numbers 2 and 3 disappeared or have not surfaced in many years. Can anyone add to this. It would be interesting to know why these are not lsted. Joe
