  philodendron tenue

to all,
I have a plant that looks identical to the picture of Philo. tenue that
was labeled P. ecuadoriense (hort.) when I bought it from GW in Ohio. Does
anyone know if this is a synonym? Betsy, do you know?

Philodendron ecuadorense Engl. was synonymized to
Philodendron tenue K. Koch & Augustin by Croat (1997) Revision
of Philodendron...
Also accepted by P. Jorgensen (1999) in Plants of Ecuador.

I think that Philodendron ecuadoriense is considered a synonym of P. tenue
but this may have all changed. Phildodedron tenue is extremely variable, and
it just may be that there are two species or more in that mess, but sometimes
sorting out these problems takes many untold trips to the field and a
lifetime to sort out. Tom Croat might have the answer to your question.

Dear Don
In Tom Croat's Revision of Subgen Philodendron (on the IAS website) he has
reduced 3 species to synonomy under P.tenue. These are P ecuadorense, P.gracile
and P.sodiroanum. Trust this helps.
