Based on the photos I've seen of P. spiritus-sancti ('Santa Leopoldina')
and all the other philodendrons erroneously called 'Santa Leopoldina',
there can be no mistaking the real thing based on the strikingly narrow
leaf blade length to width ratio. To my mind the only philodendron that
can legitimately be called 'Santa Leopoldina' is the one the Brazilian
locals have endeared with this name for perhaps centuries. And that plant
is P. spiritus-sancti.
