Dear David &
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.

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
Here's what I'm trying to track down. In Deni
Bown's book on Aroids she indicates that Philodendron panduriforme is the same
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 is a three lobed species according to Tom.
If any of you have a verified photo of that species I'd appreciate the
