Hi Eugene

'wild type' E, aureum is green (i.e., it resembles golden variegated E.
aureum when it reverts). There are very few collections of it from Moorea,
although it's common and quite widespread in the remaining forest.

The synonymy for E. pinnatum is:

Philippine populations of E.
            pinnatum require a separate study to resolve their status. Given
the varied nature of
            the syntypes cited by Engler, no attempt at lectotypification
will be made here.
