  Monstera-ID
From: gartenbaureisenberger at web.de (Helmut Reisenberger) on 2008.01.19 at 16:25:39(16969)
Dear all,

I am sure, somebody can help me! Question: What happened to the good old "Monstera karwinskii", which I still successfully grow and multiply.
I can?t find it in the recent literature (scient. websites), but I still see it in older publications.

Thank You for your help,
Helmut Reisenberger

The proper name is M. karwinskyi, that's why you cannot find it.

Dear Helmut,

Aloha.

Monstera karwinskyi was sunk into synonymy with
Monstera acuminata, K.Koch(1855)....according to Kew.

Aloha,

Leland

Dear Helmut:

Monstera karwinskyi Schott was placed in synonomy with M. acuminata K. Koch (assuming that your plant was not just a misidentificaition of some other species).
