This is Philodendron subgen.
Pteromischum. I have forwarded it to Mike Grayum, the expert on this group in
hopes he can determine it in this state. It looks a lot like P.
auranitiifolium, I think, but there are quite a number that are similar.

Subject: [Aroid-l] Panama Aroid
I may be way off Harry but it just looks like a
juvenile Philodendron hederaceum
(micans, scandens, oxycardium) based on the stem, venation and one
cataphyll. Tom would be the best source. Some have the velvet
appearance but many forms don't. We saw a fairly large semi-adult at the Myriad Center
yesterday that had no velutinous appearance and I have several in my atrium
that don't show it as well.

This plant is being passed around the dart frog hobby
since it makes such a nice small aroid to grow in terrariums. It was supposedly
collected in Panama
but I have no other info other than that. If someone had told me it was from Asia I would say it was a species of Pothos. Any ideas on
