  [Aroid-l] More on Monstera dilacerata
From: Michael Pascall <mickpascall at hotmail.com> on 2010.04.10 at 01:11:36
Did a few more searches today for this sp.
And found it is still a valid species on GRIN ..

Taxon: Monstera dilacerata K. Koch

Genus: Monstera
Family: Araceae subfamily: Monsteroideae tribe: Monstereae.
Nomen number: 312844
Place of publication: A. C. H. Braun et al.=2C App. gen. sp. nov. 5. 1855
Name verified on: 14-Oct-1987 by ARS Systematic Botanists. Last updated: 06-Nov-2006
Species priority site is: Natl. Germplasm Repository - Miami (MIA).

It is still listed on Tropicos as well . So goes to show you cannot believe everything you hear or read .. Is it just that it has not been updated ?

Or mistaken identity with mature foliage that got this statment ..

"The wantonly and inventively misapplied Monstera dilacerata (K. Koch &=3B Sello) K. Koch is revealed to be a synonym of the Asian Epipremnum pinnatum =3B (L.) Engl.=2C and the obscure Monstera pinnatipartita Schott is neotypified and resurrected for one of the four Costa Rican spp. included under M. dilacerata in Madison's generic revision (Contr. Gray Herb. 207: 1-100. 1977). The redundant combination Monstera dissecta (Schott) Croat &=3B Grayum (1987) is corrected to M. dissecta (Schott) N. E. Br. ex Donn. Sm. (1899). No illustrations. "

I cannot wait for the next revision .
