Dear Michael,

I’m by no means an authority on Monstera, and you mustcheck with Tom on this, but reading through Madison’s synonymy and excluding dilacerataand its homotypical synonyms AND assuming that the description he gives istruly only a single species (far from the case in many of his taxa) AND allowingfor the fact that Madison’s revision covers barely a third of the species thatprobably 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 thename was published in destroyed (or believed so) and that a new type has been chosento represent the taxon.

Very best
