Dear David & Steve:


            I can see why Deni Bown thought that this is the same as P. bipennifolium.  The problem is that this species (P. panduriforme) is usually more deeply 3-lobed.

Apologies, the photo did not attach the first time!



I've been trading emails today with Dr. Croat trying to find information on Philodendron panduriforme.  He indicates he wrote an article in Aroideana Volume 9 that includes that species entitled Araceae of Venezuela.  If any of you have the article and could scan any photos of the plant (if there are any) I'd really appreciate the help.


Here's what I'm trying to track down.  In Deni Bown's book on Aroids she indicates that Philodendron panduriforme is the same as Philodendron bippenifolium (see the index).  I have read this same claim elsewhere.  Tom indicates this is incorrect.  I am aware that P. bipennifolium has several growth forms and is variable.  I have a great photo from a book on the Burle Marx collection of the adult form of this species which I am attaching.  I'm also aware the adult form looks absolutely nothing like the juvenile.  It appears that many (especially on eBay) have been selling P. bipennifolium in the juvenile state and calling it P. panduriforme and vice versa.  I'm reasonably certain I have P. bipennifolium, but I'm not sure if I have the real P. panduriformeP. panduriforme is a three lobed species according to Tom.  If any of you have a verified photo of that species I'd appreciate the assist.
