"The wantonly and inventively misapplied Monstera dilacerata (K. Koch& Sello) K. Koch is revealed to be a synonym of the AsianEpipremnum pinnatum (L.) Engl., and the obscure Monsterapinnatipartita Schott is neotypified and resurrected for one of thefour Costa Rican spp. included under M. dilacerata in Madison's genericrevision (Contr. Gray Herb. 207: 1-100. 1977). The redundantcombination Monstera dissecta (Schott) Croat & Grayum (1987) iscorrected to M. dissecta (Schott) N. E. Br. ex Donn. Sm. (1899). Noillustrations. "
