I think Simon also reduced P.mello-barretoanum to synonomy under
P.bipinnatifidum. Having only seen photos of this plant I must admit to being a
little shocked with this as the leaf form seems substantially different. Have
you seen this plant in the flesh?

here in Australia all these plants are lumped in as P.selloum but I think they
are not all tissue cultured plants as you can still find some with variety in
leaf forms. I have a nice one growing here that is more pinnatifidum than
"bi"pinnatifidum, as the leaves are cut once but only the merest hint of twice.
Still clearly a Meconostigma plant nevertheless.

I have just selfed my large bipinnatifiduma nd have quite a few seedlings
growing now and I'll be interested to see what variety the seedlings show in
leaf form.

Also I have never seen a red spathed form out here, or anywhere for that matter.
Green rules!

So much work to be done by someone and so little time!
