I am glad that you agree with me that they are different and I think you can
clearly see that now that you have an image of the real P. panduriforme.

Since I began this discussion on my own website I've
been hit with a fair number of emails telling me I'm "dead wrong" and Philodendron panduriforme is just an old
name for Philodendron
bipennifolium. Others try to tell me the plants are almost
identical with the exception that P.
panduriforme has rounded upper lobes and P. bipennifolium has pointed upper
lobes. And still others helped point me to the correct answer.
I've spent quite a bit of time corresponding with a number of experts and
today recieved from Julius Boos in West Palm Beach a copy of volume 9 of the
International Aroid Society's journal, Aroideana. In that journal is a photo
of the the real Philodendron
panduriforme taken by Dr. Croat. If you wish
to see photos of both species and read all the information I've
collected so far click on this link.http://www.exoticrainforest.com/Philodendron%20bipennifolium%20pc.htmlSometimes

My thanks to Julius Boos for his help in tracking
down the photo of P.
panduriforme. I've now updated the link on the
website with several new color photos of Philodendron bipennifolium and the
black and white photo from Dr. Croat of Philodendron panduriforme. I hope
to soon have photos of the fully adult form of P. bipennifolium from Joep Moonen in
and grow many rare and exotic tropical plants and orchids.
