Dear Brian,


These are Philodendron subgenus, Philodendron.  Start by looking at  the ,Annals of the Missouri Botanical Garden, 1997, Volume 84, Number 3...A Revision of Philodendron Subgenus Philodendron(Araceae) for Mexico and Central America, by Thomas B. Croat.  Tom may be in the field, and he may know if he can see your photos.  Unfortunately your photos are only of sterile plants and that is difficult to determine positive identities since there are several similar species.  Panama has the greatest number of endemic Philodendron in this subgenus...in Central America...IF your location is correct. This may narrow your search.  

Many plants are easier to identify if accurate locality data is recorded.

Subject: [Aroid-l] looking for three Philo IDs

I have had 3 Philodendrons in my greenhouses for years and have been
unable to put names to them. I believe all three were from a older
collector whom I use to trade with that had collected in Panama several
times. I am not sure if these species were collected from Panama but it
is very likely.  One has leaves very similar to mexicanum but no maroon
on the undersides and the leaf tends to morph with age. Mature specimens
look almost tri-lobed.

Photos can be found here on  my flickr account.
