Russ,

Hope you get some answers - nobody was able to comment on mine either.

That said; I don't see a picture attached of yours? May I see it?

Dear Russ:

While there is always some doubt I do believe that this is Anthurium angustifolium Schott.

As long as we are on the subject of Syngonium, is there a reliable way to distiguish in the field between S. podophyllum and S. auritum? It matters because in the Dominican Republic, S. auritum is native, S. podophyllum is naturalized.

here in cultivation auritum has leathery glossy leaf blades while podophyllum has thin matte leaf blades.

This is auritum (not my image)

I agree with Eduardo. Syngonium angustifolium is much more of a weed than S. podophyllum. I remember that it was adorning the trees of the public circle in Balboa when I was working on my Revision
of Syngonium and I had not found it anywhere in the wild at that time in Panama. Many neotropical aroids have been introduced in to the natural forests of Papua New Guinea. I was shocked to see so many such species in what I thought was virgin forests around
Lae.

Hello Eduardo

Dear Jude: I have to assume that this variegated form is just an unusual form of Syngonium podophyllum Schott. I think that most of the cultivars have arisen from that species but the juvenile
forms of all Syngonium are somewhat subject to doubt since one never really knows who creates these thing and from what source.

Dear Eduardo,

Ah HA - great stuff and MANY thanks for the clarification. Wooo it means that angustatum is a pestilential weed here on Borneo!

Very best wishes

Dear George,

Like all material people say is S. podophyllum, you are a proud owner of a S. angustatum. Congratulations!!!

Thank you very much, Eduardo!

It is quite a weed here in the Philippines. It can cover a wall in no time. I appreciate your shedding light on this long-standing misidentification. 👍

I have found S. angustatum to be common in Guam, Thailand, Laos, and Taiwan . . . but I also thought it was S. podophyllum. Thanks for the corrections and explanations Eduardo!!

Happy days,

Christopher
