  RE: [Aroid-l] Philodendron ID?

Dear Steve,

As Julius already pointed out, it is a Philodendron from the subgenus
Meconostigma (self-heading Philo), like P. bipinnatifidum (including
"selloum"), P. mello-barretoanum, etc. In my opinion, it is a dwarf form of
a regular species with bipinnatifid leaf blade (P. mello-barretoanum, P.
lundii or P. bipinnatifidum). I couldn't see the squamules (small persistent
or deciduous thorns within leaf sheath) in detail at the stem, so I don't
know exactly from which species this misfit came. If I had a closer picture
of the stem, I can say exactly from which species it came.

Very best wishes,
