Monstera minima is a species described by M. Madison (977) based on a specimen collected by J. A. Duke and had not been recollected until recently. During an aroid inventory (Mora et aI., in press), and study of vertical distribution of epiphytic aroids in forest on the Pacific coast of Choco (Jacome, unpubl. data) individuals of Monstera minima were collected. This species was previously only known from the type specimen in Panama in the Comarca de San BIas and was considered endemic to that country (Madison, 1977).
