  Re: [Aroid-l] Philodendron hastatum

Title: Re: [Aroid-l] Philodendron

Steve, et al.;

I first posed this question about Philodendron hastatum back at
the beginning of the month, but don't believe anyone ever spoke to it.
We either have Philodendron hastatum being named several times, by
different authors, or we have several plants which were initially
named P. hastatum (presumably, at least one has been changed since
then). Is there any light to be shed on this difficulty? The reason I
pursue this at this point is not out of any obnoxious streak, but
rather because I'm working on permenant labels for our collection
which include the author's name. With this species, I'm not sure which
author's name is the correct one. The possibilities include: Engl.;
Schott; and K. Koch & Sello.
Any suggestions on which direction to go in would be most
