  Re: [aroid-l] From Peru

Hola Jorge,

Greetings from Brazil! That?s great to have someone else from the
southlands in this list. I thought I was the only "talking" South American
Well, I don?t know if Tom has changed the status of this thing in his
last surveys of Peruvian aroids, but Michael Grayum (1996) kept P.
chinchamayense as a good species and lumped P. krukovii as a synonim of P.
guttiferum. I have to confess that is hard to me say the differences between
P. guttiferum and other species like P. rudgeanum, so the picture is a bit
more complex in my opinion. Anyhow, I have never seen something that could
be referred to P. chinchamayense, so I can?t help much more than this. The
type of this material was supposed to be in Berlin, but it wasn?t there when
I visited this herbarium, so maybe Tom has this plant as a loan in MO. Ask
him a photocopy of both types (when he is back from Peru) and you can say by
yourself if they are synonims.

Saludos cordiales,

Eduardo G. Goncalves
