Dear Marek,
I can't help with the id of the Nigerian species but would agree it's more likely Cercestis if it's in the wild as Syngonium is not native to Nigeria.
Slightly off topic, the mention of medicinal uses makes me wonder if Ogie-Odia Efosa might like to make contact with me (denibown@gmail.com) as I'm in the process of moving to Nigeria and will be working on a project in Ibadan that involves Nigerian medicinal plants.
Please could you forward this if your Nigerian friend doesn't read aroid-l.
Many thanks,

Dear Marek:


            Did you ever get a name on this?  I agree that it looks like Cercestis.

Dear Experts,


I think it is something from the tribe Culcasieae (Cercestis or Culcasia), could you help?


Thanks in advance




Dear Sir,

Top of the day to you.

Please i need your help in identifying this plant which belongs to the Araceae family. it is normally found in rainforest and is a religious plant used in Edo state, Nigeria. I am thinking it belongs to the Syngonium or Cercestis genera but i dont know how sure that is.

I willbe greatful if you can assist.

Thank you a lot
