  What about P. melanochrysum ?
From: "Michael Pascall" mickpascall at hotmail.com> on 2006.05.17 at 06:37:25(14219)
Just browsed the Philo list on our site , P. elongatum is listed ..
BUT , my question is ... P andreanum and P. melanochrysum are they one and
the same plant ?
Both names are listed on the list , the picture of
P. melanochrysum looks to be a young P.andreanum...
I know how long it takes to get a mature leaf on this sp. a looooong time
so maybe this is why immature plants could have been given another name .
This plant cannot be the same as the one with the enormous leaves , so lets
call it something else .

Hello Michael,

I think they are two different species

Philodendron andreanum Devansaye 1886
Philodendron melanochrysum Linden & Andre 1873

Btw: Philo melanochrysum is sometimes named Ph. hederaceum var. micans, Ph.
micans or Ph. scandens var. micans
Ph scandens and Ph. hederaceum are synonyms

There's a big mess around these plants
