I am no expert on this, I just rely on those that are. Tom will tell you TROPICOS is not kept up to date as is CATE. Hemostly relies on CATE or the World Checklist and frequently refers meto one or the other.

Mike Grayum is quite the expert on Monstera so my suggestionwould be if you don't believe the info on CATE then contact Tom, Simon,Mike or Eduardo. I just do my best to follow their lead.

Dear Michael,

I’m by no means an authority on Monstera, and you must check with Tom
on
this, but reading through Madison’s synonymy and excluding dilacerata
and
its homotypical synonyms AND assuming that the description he gives is
truly
only a single species (far from the case in many of his taxa) AND
allowing
for the fact that Madison’s revision covers barely a third of the
species
that probably exist in Monstera AND there are also some blunders in the
work, the next available name is indeed M. pinnatipartita.

Neotypified means that the all typical material cited when the name was
published in destroyed (or believed so) and that a new type has been
chosen
to represent the taxon.

Very best

Peter
