There a quite some “shared” clades for this trans ecozone distribution:

The ‘obvious’ ones are the Schismatoglottis Alliance [Philonotion][Cryptocoryneae+Schismatoglottideeae]

The Monsteroideae (with notably Rhaphidophora in W Africa, and IndoMalaya)

The Lasioids, especially Anaphyllopsis (Neotropics) Lasimorpha (W Africa), Anaphyllum (India), Lasia/Cyrtosperma/Podolasia (Asian tropics)

The extraordinary Nephthytis in West Africa & N Borneo

More subtly Aglaonema/Aglaodorum (Asian tropics) is compellingly linked to almost wholly African Nephthytideae.

The most ‘complete’ clade is in American Journal of Botany 98(4), 654–668] - Cusimano et al 2011.pdf
