Dear All,

Here goes---
Before Dr. Goncalves' article in Aroideana Vol. 25, pg.2, there was only ONE species recognized as P. williamsii by Dr. Simon Mayo, and the plants with the 'wavy' leaf edge were considered a variety of the P. williamsii complex. NOW the population from the area of Espirito Santo has been described by Dr. Goncalves as a different and NEW species (as was suspected by Dr. Mayo), P. stenolobum (no vars. involved, just TWO valid and different species!!!). P. stenolobum is very different from the TRUE P. williamsii`s which has, among differences, a flat leaf blade, and differs in several other VALID ways from 'true' P. williamsii, plants of which are less common and less sought after than the newly described and more desirable/'attractive' P. stenolobum.
Just read Eduardo`s excellent article in Aroideana Vol 25, all will become clear!!

Good Growing,


My P. stenolobum has leaves exactly like those of the large plant featured in last year's Aroid Show. I find it hard
to believe that the plant that was called williamsii a few years ago, and was part of the controversy with the plant now
called stenolobum, could be a variation of stenolobum. If they are, in fact, all to be called stenolobum, there will be much
confusion with this species. Certainly they must be identified under different varietal names to avoid this.
