Excellent discussion and explanation, Christopher, thanks!
Just yesterday Dr. Croat, Joep Moonen, Enid, Sam and myself were discussing
this topic at Enid`s home while examining her wonderful collection of
aroids, particulalrly her amazing Philodendrons, and Tom was speculating
almost exactly along the lines you bring up, that by certain species in
nature seem to have crossed, and by so doing produced a hybrid, which in
certain cases may turn out to be a 'more sucessful' plant in the envioroment
than the parents, which has 'become' a new species (over
hundreds/thousands/hundreds of thousands of years??) and has been described
as such!
