In addition to that unknown aroid(Philodendron solimoesense? One of those aquatic maconostigma?), we found this amazing beautiful P. bipinnatifidum in the elephant house in the National Zoo in Washington DC....behind it is some monstera(?)

Dear Arlan,

I had a look, this plant is P. stenolobum. I base this determination both on leaf blade shape AND the features seen on the rhizome. It is probably an example of the ''less desirable'' form, which was sold as P. williamsii, this was before Dr. Goncalves formally described P. stenolobum.

The Best,

Hola Airlan,

Those are not you best photos and the plant is in poor health. I would say
either P. solimoesense or a wide leaf form of P. stenolobum that was in
tissue culture a few years ago. If I had to pick it would be P. stenolobum
from the leaf scar pattern on the stem.

Or maybe Philodendron stenolobum?

Hi Julius,

Thanks for the ID....I actually regretted sending out that i thought it was P. williamsii, was thinking it was something else.

I took this image from the National Aquarium in Baltimore, MA....

Yeah, I regretted sending that out as "P. williamsii" the moment i hit the submit button - i just wanted to "entice" people? ;-)

The reason I was thinking it might not be P. stenolobum is that the stem morphology does not seem to match my idea of what P. stenolobum usually has: very short internodes.

For example:

Dear Arlan,


For some reason, I could not open any of your photo files...but I see that you have your answer from Sir Julius...so you can take that to the bank.

Possibly Philodendron solimosense....hard to tell without better
picture. give it more light and see if it matures a bit more.

Hi denis, that was a specimen i saw at the National Aquarium in Baltimore, MD. It was in semi-darkness, which explains the bad picture quality.
