No, Rhaphidophora Hassk. is not a synonym of Philodendron Schott.
This is a mistake clearly introduced by myself. Sorry for the
confusion. I will have it fixed as soon as possible. Thank you very
much for the correction. I am sure there are other errors here and
there on our Web Page. Corrections are always welcomed and
appreciated. I am glad that you visited our Home Page for
information. I usually have the information checked before I put
themon the web. However, sometimes just can not help to put them on
For questions of such kind, The Plant Book by D. J. Mabberley
(Cambridge University Press) is the best reference in general. For
Araceae, the genera of Araveae by Bogner et al. (in press? I have not
seen it yet) will be the master book.
Please let me know if there is any one on the list is willing to help
to put more information for each genus (a checklist in my mind now)
for the IAS page. Don or I can provide the electronic data needed.
