  Philodendron panduriforme

Apologies, the photo did not attach the first
time!

I've been trading emails today with Dr. Croat trying to find
information on Philodendron panduriforme. He indicates he wrote
an article in Aroideana Volume 9 that includes that species entitled Araceae of
Venezuela. If any of you have the article and could scan any photos of the
plant (if there are any) I'd really appreciate the help.

Here's what I'm trying to track down. In Deni Bown's
book on Aroids she indicates that Philodendron panduriforme is the same
as Philodendron bippenifolium (see the index). I have read this
same claim elsewhere. Tom indicates this is incorrect. I am aware
that P. bipennifolium has several growth forms and is variable. I
have a great photo from a book on the Burle Marx collection of the adult form of
this species which I am attaching. I'm also aware the adult form looks
absolutely nothing like the juvenile. It appears that many (especially on
eBay) have been selling P. bipennifolium in the juvenile state and
calling it P. panduriforme and vice versa. I'm reasonably certain
I have P. bipennifolium, but I'm not sure if I have the real P.
panduriforme. P. panduriforme is a three lobed species
according to Tom. If any of you have a verified photo of that species I'd
appreciate the assist.

Thanks!

Dear David & Steve:

I can see why Deni Bown
thought that this is the same as P. bipennifolium. The problem is that this
species (P. panduriforme) is usually more deeply 3-lobed.

Thanks Tom. Your photo in Aroideana volume 9 shows an
obviously more mature specimen.
