Dear all,

I have just noticed an interesting point which will help in distinguishing the
two species in question. On the clone of Monstera dubia that I know, as well as
on the one illustrated on the cover of Aroideana vol. 1 issue 2, the area along
the veins are green and the area between them is silvery. Is is exactly the
opposite on this new Rhaphidophora species, it is the veins that are paler than
the rest of the lamina ...

Here is a link to a Monstera dubia photograph:
