Russ and Eduardo
I have both these plants - the 'new' P stenolobum and the 'old' P. williamsii. Like you Russ, I think that just by looking at them that they are different species. Old williamsii's leaves are longer, narrower and much stiffer and I suspect the petioles are typically longer too. Eduardo, you are saying that the plant considered by most people to be P. williamsii is not the true williamsii as this has a broader leaf like speciosum. Then what is the 'old' P. williamsii then? Is it a sub-species of stenolobum or something without a name that needs to be described? Look forward to shedding more light on this.

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.
