  Unknown Philodendron
From: "Steve Lucas Exotic Rainforest" steve at exoticrainforest.com> on 2006.09.11 at 17:11:48(14592)
Does anyone have a suggestion as to what species this
philodendron may be? The largest leaves are currently approximately
13 inches (33cm) but I'm told they get much larger. This one is definately
a climber and is adding new leaves every few months. The underside of the
blade is a very pale burgundy.

Thanks!

Dear Steve,

The species is Philodendron atabapoense, from Venezuela and Brazil.

Very best wishes,

Eduardo.

Thank you so very much Dr.! I wish I could have the
opportunity to meet you in Miami next weekend. I lost both of my legs 4
years ago and travel is now difficult. I am planning to visit with Dr.
Croat early in October and two trips was just more than I could handle.
But your's and Dr. Croat's assistance is invaluable to me! Thanks
again.

I received a personal email from Dr. Eduardo Gon?alves
regarding my request for help in finding a name for the philo I posted last
night. The good Dr. told me it was Philodendron atabapoense
from Venezuela and Brazil. I am indebted to all of the good folks on Aroid
L for their assistance in finding out the names of some of the unusual plants in
my collection, especially Dr. Croat, Dr. Gon?alves and Julius Boos.
If anyone has personal experience with the species or more detailed information
I'd love to know.

Thanks again!

Dear Lucas,

if it is a Brazilian species can be P. curvilobum.

Thank you very much for your response. Dr. Gon?alves has
offered a different opinion so now it appears I'll have to do some confirming of
details to be certain. I have just posted the plant as
Philodendron atabapoense on my website but will add your note
as the plant possibly being Philodendron
curvilobum as well until we can be
certain which name is correct. I know photographs of specimens that
are not fully mature can be difficult to identify so I certainly
appreciate your help. Should you care to review my post the direct link
