  Re: [Aroid-l] More on Monstera dilacerata
From: Peter Boyce <phymatarum at googlemail.com> on 2010.04.12 at 02:30:18(20826)
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
