Dear Jorge,

Yes, the area around Talara is indeed very arid, but about an hour North of
Talara on the road after Los Organos going North there is a quebrada with a
road along its bottom leading inland that might have enough water to support
some aroids, perhaps some Philodendron and Monstera sps., and some seasonal
species such as Xanthosoma and Caladium. There are also wet areas near the
town of Tumbes, along the river.
Piura is also a very dry area on a flat, dry plain, but I remember reading
that there were or are some wetter areas in river passes in the Piura region
where a rare species of guan (a chicken-like bird) still exists, so perhaps
in these slightly wetter areas rare aroids might be discovered! Good
We shall keep in contact.
