RE: [Aroid-l] Philodendron stenolobum and P. bipinnatifidum?

Title: RE: [Aroid-l] Philodendron stenolobum and P. bipinnatifidum?

Dear Eduardo:

        I suppose that any plant that I have in cultivation would fall into this category.  Is most of the material that has been called P. williamsii now to be called P. stenolobum?

Dear Russ,

       Please, forget the name P. williamsii. The real P. williamsii from
Bahia state (Brazi)l has wide leaves (more or less similar to P. speciosum)
and has NOTHING to do with P. stenolobum. This confusion have started a long
time ago, I don´t know why. I have collected many different populations of
P. stenolobum in the wild, and there is a wide variability in leaf widht but
they are always much narrower than any other sagittate leaf self header
Philodendron (subg. Meconostigma).

                                      Very best wishes,
