  Philodendron corrugatum Croat
From: Steve at ExoticRainforest.com (ExoticRainforest) on 2007.10.02 at 17:12:39(16374)

I've got another specimen for which I can't find technical information. The species is Philodendron corrugatum Croat. (see photo) All I've learned is the species was described in 1997 and is most concentrated in Ecuador but also found in Colombia, Peru and northern and northwestern Brazil. If anyone knows anything useful regarding this species I'd appreciate knowing that information including blade size, growth rate, etc. Obviously, I'd love to get a copy of the scientific description.

Dear Steve,

Aloha. I cannot help you with the specifics of this
Philodendron. I do have a request for you that will
aid all those who use your website.

My request to you is, when you are researching
Philodendron or Anthurium and you know the Subgenus
and Section or other classification; that you include
this information. I see that you often include
these...especially with Anthurium species. I realize
that it is often difficult to tease out this
information, but it will be helpful in the long run if
more of us familiarize ourselves with the various
Subgenera and Sections....especially if they have
easily distinguishable characteristics...ie.

Yes it is! I always try to find it but that information is often not easily found. I've been asking Tom on the species he gives me info on but since he's not around for almost another month you don't know how much I miss his help. If any of you know the section of any I've posted let me know so I can add it!

Dear Steve,

This species, P. corrugatum, has not being officialy published but I am
confident that Dr. Croat will do it soon. As far as I know it only ocurrs in
Colombia, and maybe in Ecuador.

Thanks, we've pretty well determined mine is not Philodendron corrugatum. It is most likely Philodendron attenuatum.
