  seeking unusual specimens
From: Steve at ExoticRainforest.com (ExoticRainforest) on 2008.03.05 at 06:54:09(17126)
I am trying to locate a source for three unusual aroids:

Rhaphidophora graeffei from Samoa
Rhaphidophora guamensis from Guam
Philodendron longilaminatum from eastern Brazil

The first two are scandent climbers that are endemic only to the locations named. I have not even been able to find a photo of these species, so if any of you have them, know of a source or have a photo, please post it. I'm told the first two are in the collection of the Kew in London but not being an accredited organization I dare not ask for cuttings. I will gladly purchase or trade for any of the three.

Thanks!

Steve Lucas

A followup on my request:
I am aware that Rhaphidophora guamensis does not show up on any official list. I'm not certain if the name I have is a misspelling or one that is not yet officially published. If any of you know anything on these, please let me know.
