  How to Approach ID
From: Jason Hernandez <jason.hernandez74 at yahoo.com> on 2011.11.16 at 23:55:04(22296)
I recently returned from Ecuador, where I photographed a number of different aroid species in their natural habitat. I have in mind to use the pictures in a piece for the IAS Newsletter, since this was in a botanically-unexplored area. Because of this, I hesitate to post them on the ID Center, since that could create a conflict in publication rights. What is the best way to try to obtain ID in such a case? These aroids include the genera Monstera, Philodendron, Anthurium, Dieffenbachia, one that I think may be a Caladium, and one of a genus I do not recognize.

On a related note, can anyone direct me to someone who knows the Cyclanthaceae?

Dear Jason,


I would email them privately to Dr.Tom Croat for ID at MOBOT.

Tom can direct you to someone who studies Cyclanthaceae. He may even know those himself.

Dear Jason: I should be able to determine
most of your collections. Could you sned them as a zip file or on a cd? In which
areas were you visiting. Some are better known to me than others.
