The Ongoing Saga of Philodendron tortum

by Julius Boos

This illustration is of Engler`s Philodendron angustisectum, from 'Das Pflanzenreich'. Dr. Croat reports that the type specimen of P. angustisectum which is at MOBOT is in fact Philodendron radiatum, as far as can be determined. Thanks to Eduardo Goncalves for the photo.
