Title: RE: [Aroid-l] Urgent Request from Tom Croat, a strange new collection (fwd)
This IS a new Bognera.
Josef knows all about this. He mentioned it to me on the phone only last week.

The message below is from Tom Croat, who is having problems getting it sent to the list, so I've forwarded it.
(Note that if you just reply to this message, it won't go to Tom, but rather to either the entire list [most likely] or me. I will of course forward anything that comes to me to Tom, but just be aware that if you want to communicate with Tom directly you'll have to change the address manually to Tom's e-mail, Thomas.Croat@mobot.org )

Subject: Urgent Request to List members, a strange new collection
I have described a plant collected in a remote habitat near the Brazilian border in Peru. It was collected by a friend in California who has been growing it as an acuatic. It has a definitely creeping stem, rather short petioles and in many respects looks like Aglaonema costatum.
It keyed out to Bognera and I assumed that it was a member of that genus but Eduardo Gonçalves has some doubts and is wondering if it could have been an escaped horticultural collection. Although that seems somewhat unlikely I would like to see any images that any of you might have of Aglaonema costatum in order to make a better judement. It would be especially useful to see a close up of the spadix if any of you have that species in flower at this time.
Thanks in advance for any help that anyone can render.
