  selloum any way you can

Help, someone, please. The name Philodendron selloum is strongly entrenched
in the horticulture industry, but I am influenced by the fact that most of my
"authorities" see that name as a synonym of P. bipinnatifidum. I am about to
make this switch in the three or four availability lists that I can affect,
but on one last swing through the internet I find that the ISTA list of
stabilized names gives P. lundii Warm. as a synonym of P. bipinnatifidum
Schott. ex Endl. but lists P. selloum K. Koch as a "good" name.
O.K. my simple question (why is it that they never have simple answers?):
What is the correct name for the plant used in enormous quantities in Florida
landscaping? I know that there are odds and ends of hybrids out there, but
what is the best name to use for the one that "everyone" grows?
