  [Aroid-l] Monstera question..
From: Thomas.Croat at mobot.org (Tom Croat) on 2008.06.23 at 20:01:20(17923)
Dear Helmut:

Monstera acuminata is a distinct Central American species and M. oblique is a distinct species ranging from Central America to South America but M. friedrichstahalii is a synonym of M. adansonii. However, plants of mistaken determination labeled M. friedrichstalii were actually M. siltepecana. What was called Monstera pertusa for years is actually M. adansonii but if I am not mistaken the type of that plant is a Rhaphidophora from Asia. Monstera "pertusa" never had anything to do with M. deliciosa.
