  Re: [Aroid-l] Philodendron with largest leaves?
From: Zach DuFran <zdufran at gmail.com> on 2018.08.30 at 07:21:31(24017)
I don't think anyone has suggested that the move is not fully supported. Someone may have said something to the effect of many people don't know about the move and are still using the former names. Here is the journal article recognizing the genus Thaumatophyllum: https://phytokeys.pensoft.net/articles.php?id=25044

I believe the largest Thaumatophyllum leaves are probably bipinnatifidum and speciosum. One source I found online just now mentioned bipinnatifidum leaves measuring as long as 120 cm.

Another Philodendron that can produce very large leaves is Philodendron warszewiczii.

Good luck on your quest to find the largest,
