  Anthurium elegans taxonomy
From: =?iso-8859-1?B?ZGF2aWQgYnL2ZGVyYmF1ZXI=?= <david_dav44 at hotmail.com> on 2012.01.23 at 01:00:43(22517)
Dear Aroiders,

I have received an inflorescence of Anthurium elegans from Josef Bogner some time ago. Now I checked it's taxonomic status on the Kew Monocot checklist. There, Anthurium elegans is listed as synonym for 2 species, Anthurium palmatum and A. fortunatum.
Josef Bogner says that his specimen is different from A. palmatum. So it could be Anthurium fortunatum - or is Anthurium elegans itself still a valid species?
Thanks for help!

Dear David: There is a mistake in the World
Checklist. Anthurium elegans Engl. Is a synonym of A. pedatum (L) Schott. In
my copy of the checklist I have also included A. fortunatum Bunting as being
equal to A. pedatum.
