Hi Tom et al.,

    I have seen this plant in cultivation with the name "Philodendron species 69686a".  Other than that, I can't offer any insights about its identity or provenance.

Dear Cassia:

            Thanks for your willingness to pass this on to Aroid-L.  As I told you it is not Philodendron angustilobum Croat & Grayum but I have always assumed that this thing came from the Burle-Marx collection.  Perhaps it really is a species but I have always assumed that it was a hybrid, perhaps with P. pedatum.  I am hoping that someone on the list might have more familiarity with this taxon.

Dear Tom,


First of all, my best wishes for 2009 to you and all your family!

Tom, could you please tell me if the material in the pictures can be P. angustilobum? It was collected in the Rio de Janeiro Botanic Garden (in cultivation) by Marcus and I for a Masters student working on Philos stem anatomy. I have checked the flowers and they match with your description. More ou less the material matches but the vinaceus color of the petiole and part of the spathe worries me.

Thank you very much for any help.
