  Re: [Aroid-l] Amydrium or Rhaphidophora

Harry,

This is Rhaphidophora decursiva a trans-Himalaynan species from Nepal
eastwards through Bangladesh, N. Myanmar, N. Thailand, N. Lao PDR, N
Vietnam and into SW China. It can get very large (60 + m) tall and is
distinctive for having shoots with the foliage leaves only every 4 - 7 nodes
and the intervening nodes with a barct-like leaf (cataphyll).

Cheers

Peter
