While we are on the subject of shingling aroids - A friend of mine
recently got back from Panama where she was doing some field work, and
told me of how she found ants living under the juvenile shingling
foliage of a particular Monstera species she collected as an herberium
specimen. I had never heard of this occurring, and was curioius if ants
do regularly live under the shingle phase leaves in a mutualistic
relationship, as they are well-known to do in Hoya imbricata as well as
several species of Dischidia with similar shingling habits. I just
figured if it did regularly occur I would have heard about it by now.
Would be curious if ants are present in Rhaphidophora as well.
