Subject: [Aroid-l] Philodendron?? maybe Heteropsis

Well I have had this in my collection for a few years. It is a very odd 
aroid and I have had to experts look at it both telling me philodendron 
unknow species. I did get a two species names for it and I have the 
names on a sheet of paper I cannot seem to find. Now I don't usually 
question the experts but after looking through aroideana Vol 9  I found 
this picture of a plant listed as Heteropsis melinonii which looks 
almost exactly like this plant. Something about it tells just seems 
different than any other philo I have grown hard to explain but if you 
grow enough you seem to notice the differences. I am wondering if this 
is a philo and if so how to tell it from the Heteropsis? This group 
Heteropsis if similar to this species seems like a extremely interesting

group to grow.
