Dear David: There is a mistake in the World
Checklist. Anthurium elegans Engl. Is a synonym of A. pedatum (L) Schott. In
my copy of the checklist I have also included A. fortunatum Bunting as being
equal to A. pedatum.

Subject: [Aroid-l] Anthurium
I have received an inflorescence of Anthurium elegans from Josef Bogner some
time ago. Now I checked it's taxonomic status on the Kew Monocot checklist.
There, Anthurium elegans is listed as synonym for 2 species, Anthurium palmatum
and A. fortunatum.
Josef Bogner says that his specimen is different from A. palmatum. So it could
be Anthurium fortunatum - or is Anthurium elegans itself still a valid species?
Thanks for help!
