Dear David:=A0 There is a mistake in the World Checklist. Anthurium elegans Engl. Is a synonym of A. pedatum (L) Schott.=A0 In my copy of the checklist I have also included A. fortunatum Bunting as being equal to A. pedatum.

Dear Aroiders,

I have received an inflorescence of Anthurium elegans from Josef Bogner some time ago. Now I checked it's taxonomic status on the Kew Monocot checklist. There, Anthurium elegans is listed as synonym for 2 species, Anthurium palmatum and A. fortunatum.
Josef Bogner says that his specimen is different from A. palmatum. So it could be Anthurium fortunatum - or is Anthurium elegans itself still a valid species?
Thanks for help!
