  unknown aroid ID

Dear All,

I'd like to try the ID of the unknown aroid submitted by Paul Resslar
(n#126). To me, it is Xanthosoma mexicanum Liebm. from Mexico and
Guatemala. Some could name it X. pilosum Koch (from Costa Rica and
Colombia), but I consider these species as synonimous. Julius has
identificated it as X. pubescens Poepp., a species from northern South
America, but the true X. pubescens has more lateral ribs (10-18), while
X.mexicanum has 5 or 6.

Best Wishes,

Eduardo: I concur with your decision.

Dear Aroiders,
I need your help in the identification of an Anchomanes species which grows in the botanical garden of Vienna. It was collected in Angola and is identified as Anchomanes welwitschii. Thus, it probably should be Anchomanes difformis var. welwitschii. But to me it rather looks like Anchomanes dalzielii.

Can anyone identify this species or has some suggestions?

It certainly IS Anch. dalzielii.
