Hi Dylan,

Clades without molecular clock restraints are rotational, so you cannot say basal in this instance - they are simply sister to one-another. However, Nauheimer, Metzler & Renner [New Phytologist 195(4): 938–950] have a dated tree which places Adelomena basal to a Philodendron+Homalomena+Furtadoa clade.
