  Re: [Aroid-l] Philodendron with largest leaves?
From: Peter Boyce <phymatarum at gmail.com> on 2018.08.30 at 23:38:30(24024)
Accepting (supporting) Thaumatophyllum as a genus is not simply a matter of agreeing that the species assigned to subgen. Meconostigma deserve to be recognized as belonging to a newly circumscribed Thaumatophyllum, there is also the question as to what removal of these species from the corpus of Philodendron leaves behind - i.e., does removal of Thaumatophyllum mean that the balance of Philodendron is no longer a 'natural' genus and to render it so requires further splitting. This may all sound very esoteric but in terms of understanding evolutionary process it is important stuff.
