  Re: [Aroid-l] Fw: Please i need id on this Araceae plant
From: Deni Bown <denibown at googlemail.com> on 2010.02.06 at 17:20:11
Dear Marek,
I can't help with the id of the Nigerian species but would agree it's more likely Cercestis if it's in the wild as Syngonium is not native to Nigeria.
Slightly off topic, the mention of medicinal uses makes me wonder if Ogie-Odia Efosa might like to make contact with me (denibown@gmail.com) as I'm in the process of moving to Nigeria and will be working on a project in Ibadan that involves Nigerian medicinal plants.
Please could you forward this if your Nigerian=A0friend doesn't read aroid-l.
Many thanks,

Dear Experts,


I think it is something from the tribe Culcasieae (Cercestis or Culcasia), could you help?


Thanks in advance




Dear Sir,

Top of the day to you.
