Dear Peter,

Aloha.

Thank you.  That is very helpful.  I'll watch for the pitfalls.  

Aloha,

Leland

Dear Leland,
 
The easiest is the âum ending, which is neuter; masculine end in âus; feminine end in âa. But beware there are pitfalls. The best-know are the so-called âRoman Treesâ â which are treated as feminine (as Romans did) but whose names donât âagreeâ â thus Quercus, Laurus, Fraxinus, Juniperus, Arbutus, etc.

Are there easy rules to determine gender in a name?

Hi Enid,
 
All I can tell you is that it is Philodendron saxicola. and not saxicolum. -cola, the noun to dwell is here used in apposition (i.e., as an adjective) and doesn't agree with the gender of the genus. The same is true for Arum rupicola, Anthurium amnicola, etc.
